Transfer and Career Resources
College students often decide to transfer from one institution to another while completing a degree. Rrainy River Community College and the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities work together to make transferring easier. All state colleges and universities are accredited and offer the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC), a package of general education courses accepted for transfer to the other state colleges and universities.
Plan ahead if you might want to transfer someday, and let your college advisor know. Some programs and courses are not designed for transfer, so be sure to ask before you register for classes. Rainy River Community College's Transfer Credit Policy and Procedure and Transfer Credit Evaluation Appeal form are available here.
