POLICY STATEMENT

Alexandria Technical and Community College (ATCC) accepts transfer credits from regionally accredited educational institutions. All credits that are applicable to the student's ATCC major are transferred in to meet program requirements. If a student does not agree with a transfer of credit decision, the Student Appeal Process is in place for them to appeal the decision. The ATCC Transfer Specialist, Registrar, or designee, serve as credit evaluators to assist students with questions about the transfer of credit.

Because many ATCC courses are sequential, students who transfer in credits may still need to attend ATCC for the standard number of terms to complete a program majors, but may take fewer credits each semester or may adjust their schedule based on what transferred in.

Transfer students who receive financial aid should check with the Financial Aid Office to determine how their transfer credits impacts their financial aid status.

Credits from Non-Regionally Accredited Institutions

ATCC accepts credits from non-regionally accredited institutions if the courses meet certain requirements. See ATCC Procedure 3.21.1 Transfer of Credit for more information.

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) credit transfer

A Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) course, MnTC goal area completion, or entire MnTC completion must transfer from one Minnesota State College or University to another Minnesota State College or University as determined by the sending institution criteria. Therefore, if a student is certified as completing a MnTC course or goal area by one Minnesota State College or University, that course or goal area must be considered complete at all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities

Transfer Student Appeal

Transfer students are entitled to a fair credit review and an explanation of why credits were or were not accepted. If a student believes a course should be accepted in transfer that was not accepted, they have the right to appeal the decision. See ATCC Procedure 3.21.1 for the process of appealing a transfer decision.
