The transfer evaluation is a conversion of work from other schools into Minnesota State University Moorhead coursework so that it can be used in our degree programs and requirements. Once you are accepted at MSU Moorhead, the transcript evaluation is done by the Registrar's Office.
MSUM must receive OFFICIAL transcripts from each institution the student was enrolled in order for transfer credit to be accepted.
In order for transfer courses to be given equivalents, they have to be examined and approved by the Minnesota State University Moorhead department offering courses in the same subject area.
Transfer work is automatically used in students’ majors or minors ONLY if those courses have been given approved equivalencies by departments. If students believe that particular transfer courses should have been placed within their major or minor areas, they are encouraged to inquire with those departments concerning the use of these courses and their faculty advisors.
The results of the transfer evaluation are shown on the DARS (degree audit). It generally takes 3-4 weeks for a transfer evaluation to be completed.
