A student wishing to transfer credits into Anoka Technical College must complete the 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 delivered in person, a transcript must be delivered unopened with the official seal intact. Student copies and faxed transcripts are not considered official.
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.
Anoka Tech will accept a Minnesota Transfer Curriculum course, goal area, or the entire curriculum as determined and documented by the sending Minnesota State College and University (MnSCU) institution. Anoka Tech will also accept the entire Minnesota Transfer Curriculum as determined and documented by the University of Minnesota.
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.
Anoka Technical College grants credit for College-Level Examination Program (CLEP) examinations according to MnSCU Board of Trustees Policies and Procedure. The CLEP is a testing program of the college board designed to measure prior learning. A student may earn college credits by achieving a specified level of performance on a CLEP examination.
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.
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.
