If you’ve completed an Associate of Arts (AA) or Associate of Science (AS) at a regionally accredited institution, you will likely have completed your Liberal Arts and Sciences Curriculum at MSUM.
There may also be an articulation agreement between MSU Moorhead and your two-year school for your major program.
Once accepted, we will complete an official transfer credit evaluation (Degree Audit Report).
Submit an application in the final semester at your transfer institution or preferably three months prior to the start of the term you’re applying for. Previously submitted applications cannot be pushed to a future term. If you’ve applied for a past term but did not attend, you must complete a new application.
To be admitted to MSU Moorhead, you must meet the following requirements:
If you have completed fewer than 24 academic semester credit hours, you must provide both your college and high school official transcripts, including ACT or SAT scores, to determine admission eligibility. 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 submit 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.
To ensure a timely admission decision, please send all application materials, including in progress transcripts, at time of application.
In order for your application to be processed you must submit the following in addition to an application for an upcoming academic term:
If transcripts are not in the same name as the application (due to a legal name change), it is your responsibility to have the name corrected on the transcripts so that the application and transcripts can be linked.
Once we have received all application materials, your application will be processed within 10 business days. You’ll be notified via email and mail once a decision has been made.
You can check the status of your application by logging into the Self Service Center or by contacting your Admissions Representative.
Congratulations! We are so excited for you to continue your studies with us. We have everything you need to get you off to a good start.
We encourage you to appeal the decision so we can get to know a little more about you and to help us put your life circumstances in perspective.
