About Transferring

Pine Technical College considers courses for transfer from colleges and universities that have been accredited by their regional associations. Transfer credit also may be considered for courses taken at institutions that lack regional accreditation but have been accredited by specialized agencies or at institutions outside the United States that have been chartered or authorized by their national governments. In general, transfer credit is considered only for courses that fulfill Pine Technical College graduation and program requirements and have been completed with a grade of C or better. Grades of transfer courses are not included in the student's grade-point average (GPA). For PTC's Transfer Procedure, more about specific types of courses that transfer into PTC (general education courses, technical/occupational courses, developmental courses, etc.), information about Transfer Maximum, articulation agreements and more, visit the Transfer Information page.

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC)

PTC's Minnesota Transfer Curriculum is the result of a collaborative effort by all of the two-and four-year public colleges and universities in Minnesota to define a common philosophy toward general education. The goal of this effort is to help students transfer their work in general education. Completion of a defined transfer curriculum at one institution enables a student to receive credit for all lower-division general education upon admission to any other institution. For more information regarding program transfer, visit www.mntransfer.org.

Student Appeals

There is a two-level process through which students may appeal transfer decisions made by Pine Technical College regarding courses completed within the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) system. Students will need to complete the Student Petition and contact the Dean of Student Affairs.
