General Education and the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC)

The Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) 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 MnSCU institution. The University of Minnesota also recognizes the MnTC as fulfilling the lower division general education component of its degree programs; in addition, students in all degree programs must complete a writing intensive set of requirements.

Students who complete the transfer curriculum are certified in ten goal areas by faculty at the sending institution. Visit http://www.mntransfer.org/students/plan/s_mntc.php for details about the goal competencies of the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum.
