    MSU Moorhead’s credit transfer policies depend on the type of institution previously attended or program in which students are enrolled. All credits earned at any regionally accredited college or university will be reviewed for application towards the selected degree program. MSU Moorhead reserves the right to determine whether previous course work provides a suitable base for advanced study. All students have the right to appeal credit transfer decisions.

    Your academic right as a transfer student:

    • A clear, understandable statement of an institution’s transfer policy.
    • A fair credit review and an explanation of why credits were or were not accepted.
    • A copy of the formal appeals process.

    Process for appealing the evaluation of transfer credits:

    • Student fills out a transfer evaluation appeal form (select option: other). Students may also include supplemental information such as a course syllabus, course description, or reading list.
    • Department or committee will review the appeal.
    • Student receives, in writing, the outcome of the appeal.
    • If a student is not satisfied with a college or university transfer academic appeal decision, the student may appeal the decision at the system level to the Senior Vice Chancellor of Academic and Student Affairs. The decision of the Senior Vice Chancellor shall be binding on all system college and university parties.
