Additional Guidance on Transcripts

Students who have earned fewer than 15 college-level credits beginning after the completion of high school will need to have submitted their official final high school transcripts or GED. ACT or SAT scores are recommended, but not required.

Students who have earned credits solely through Minnesota's Post-Secondary Enrollment Options program may apply as a freshman. Additionally:

  • Provide an official high school transcript(s). ACT or SAT scores are recommended, but not required.
  • All credits earned with a grade of "C-" or higher from a regionally accredited university or college-level institution are considered for credit transfer.
