Transfer Evaluation

Page address:

Transfer evaluation is the process of converting coursework from other institutions to Minnesota State University, Mankato credits and courses.

Evaluation for undergraduate students is done in the Office of the Registrar, while transfer work for graduate students is handled by the College of Graduate Studies & Research--see their site for details on transfer and admission procedures.

However, prior to having an actual evaluation done, students must be admitted to Minnesota State University, Mankato.

The admission process for undergraduate students is handled by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions.
Transfer students applying for admission need to have their transcripts from other institutions reviewed by the Admissions Office. Transcripts from schools within the Minnesota State system are automatically sent online to the Admissions Office. However, transcripts from non-Minnesota State schools must be sent via U.S. mail to:

Minnesota State University, Mankato
