Transferring Credits into Anoka Technical College
A student wishing to transfer credits into Anoka Technical College must complete the transfer admissions process, be accepted into a program of study, and have official transcript(s) from previous college(s) sent directly to Anoka Technical College's Records and Registration Office.
An official transcript must be received in a sealed envelope. If hand carried, a transcript must be delivered unopened with the official seal intact. Student copies and faxed transcripts are not considered official.
General Guidelines for Transfer of Credit
Only those courses that are applicable to a student's certificate, diploma or degree will be considered for transfer. Anoka Technical College will accept in transfer courses that it determines to be comparable or equivalent to specific courses it offers. College-level courses accepted in transfer that are determined to be not comparable or equivalent to specific courses taught by Anoka Tech shall be accepted as electives.
Transfer of MnTC & Other Courses
Anoka Tech will accept a Minnesota Transfer Curriculum course, or goal area as determined and documented by the sending Minnesota State College and University (MnSCU) institution. However, there is no guarantee that courses from private and non-Minnesota colleges will satisfy MnTC goals, even if the courses may be transferable as electives. Such courses are evaluated on an individual basis.
Transfer of technical credits will be considered for courses that have been completed within five years prior to application for admission to Anoka Tech. Students with technical courses which were completed more than five years prior to application may be able to use the prior learning assessment process to demonstrate course content mastery and receive credit.
Transfer credits do not impact a student's grade point average (GPA). Courses transferred in will be recorded on the transcript under the "transfer credits" section. Please note that only one third of courses previously taken or accepted through prior learning (Credit by Examination, CLEP, Adavnace Placement, etc.) will be applied towards program requirements.
Anoka Technical College will accept courses from other institutions with grades of D or higher. While grades of D will be accepted by the college, they may not be accepted by individual departments due to varying departmental policies regarding acceptable grades for graduation.
Appeal Transfer Evaluation
If a student is not satisfied with a decision regarding transfer of credit, the student may complete an Appeal of Transfer Credit Form . If a student is not satisfied with the transfer appeal decision, the student may appeal this decision at the system level to the Senior Vice Chancellor of Academic and Student Affairs. The decision of the Senior Vice Chancellor is binding.
