  • Operations Management Program Transfer Student

    If you are interested in transferring into the MSU Moorhead Operations Management program either on-campus, off-site, or online please follow these steps.



  • In order o be admitted in to the Operations Management program at MSU Moorhead, you need to be in the last semester of your two year technical diploma, AS or AAS degree from an accredited institution. Your Technical degree must have a miniumum of 30 technically related credits to qualify. To transfer degrees see the MnSCU Transfer Curriculum.

    If you have completed fewer than 24 academic semester credit hours, you must provide both your college and high school official transcripts to determine admission eligibility. All grades of F, NC (No Credit), or Incomplete will be treated as Fs in computing your grade point average. If your GPA is less than 2.0, you will be denied admission.

    MSU Moorhead recognizes and upholds academic suspensions from other post-secondary institutions. If you are under suspension from another institution, you will not be considered for admission until two academic terms have passed since the suspension. Summer session does not count as a term.

    You may apply for admission to MSU Moorhead before you complete your studies at another college. You will, however, need to forward a final transcript before enrollment. We reserve the right to revoke admission to students who, after final grades are received, do not meet the minimum 2.0 GPA.

    A higher GPA may be required for entry into some academic departments.

    In addition to meeting the university’s general admission requirements, you will also need to meet admission requirements for on-site, off-site and online programs. Please contact Jim Anderson, Assistant Director of Admissions - Transfer Specialist, anderjim@mnstate.edu, 218.477.2563 for additional information.

     


    Applying to Minnesota State University Moorhead as an on-campus, online, or off-site transfer student is easy. Please submit the following documents to be considered for admission:

    • Application for admission – select “Transfer Student” for student type and "On-Campus", "Off-site" or "Online" for Delivery method.
    • A $20 non-refundable application fee.
    • Official high school transcript or GED scores.
    • Official transcript(s) from ALL post-secondary institutions you’ve previously attended. (This requirement does not apply if you have attended another Minnesota State College or University (MnSCU) institution after fall 2001.)
    • Minnesota Transfer Curriculum and Dual Enrollment. Most students will need to apply to another community or technical college to complete their MnTC and additional program requirements. Contact Jim Anderson, Assistant Director of Admissions - Transfer Specialist, anderjim@mnstate.edu, 218.477.2563 to discuss your options.

    Please note that transcripts must be sent directly from your previous institutions to the MSU Moorhead Office of Admissions. Faxed student or unofficial copies are not considered official transcripts. Failure to declare all previous post-secondary attendance is a serious offense and may result in dismissal from the university and withdrawal of all credits completed.

    If transcripts are not in the same name as the application because of a legal name change, you must have the name on the transcripts corrected so that the names on the application and transcripts match. Please remember to submit a final transcript if you are currently enrolled in another university.
