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.

About Metro State

Once admitted, contact your Metro State academic advisor early in your program to get the most out of your education, such as completing two majors, adding a minor related to your career goals, or incorporating prerequisites required for graduate school.
