About Transfer Pathways

Transfer Pathways can help you earn a bachelor’s degree without losing credits or taking extra courses. Transfer Pathways are designed for you to complete a 60 credit associate’s degree at a Minnesota State college, then transfer to Metropolitan State University and complete the final 60 credits to earn a bachelor’s degree.

Working closely with your academic advisor at both the community college and Metro State will ensure you select the correct courses in the right sequence in order to graduate in a timely manner.
