College transcripts

We need an official transcript—one that has the college seal and registrar’s signature appearing on it—from each institution you have attended. Transcripts must be mailed directly from the registrar’s office at each institution you have attended, even if no credit was earned. The transcript must have been issued less than one year before the date we receive it.

Applying for: Transcripts Needed for Application Review:
Spring semester Official transcripts from all colleges attended, including:
  • Final transcripts from the previous spring semester at your current institution
  • List of courses planned or in progress for fall semester at your current institution.

Application fee

We have not received your $55.00 non-refundable application fee. If you applied online, you can log back into your application and pay by credit card, or you can complete the Application Fee Form and submit it with your payment.

Application for resident classification

We are not able to confirm your status as a Minnesota resident. Please complete the residency form and return it to us as soon as possible so we may consider your residency status further.

Please note: we do not need the residency form completed to make a decision on your application. However, we will need the form to consider you for resident tuition.

High school transcripts

All applicants must turn in a high school transcript. The high school transcript (or GED) is needed to determine: proof of graduation; whether you have completed the high school preparation requirements; and whether you have met all of the prerequisites for admission to your college of choice. Exception: students who have previously completed an A.A. degree or bachelor's degree do not need to submit a high school transcript.

GED scores

You indicated on your application that you have or will earn a GED. Contact the Department of Education in the state where you took the exam and have your scores sent to us.
