Transfer Student Admissions

  • Admission Requirements

    To be admitted to MSU Moorhead, you must have graduated from high school or successfully completed the GED. If you have completed a minimum of 24 academic semester credit hours or 36 academic quarter-hour credits from a regionally accredited college or university and achieved a minimum cumulative 2.0 GPA, you generally will be admitted to MSU Moorhead as a transfer student.

    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 F’s 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.
