Minnesota Transfer Curriculum Planner

The public higher education colleges and universities in Minnesota have developed a common general education curriculum called the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) which provides students with a seamless transfer between colleges and universities within our state.


The general education curriculum consists of 40 or more semester credits which meet specific student competencies from the following 10 areas:

  • Communications
  • Critical Thinking
  • Natural Sciences
  • Math/Logical Reasoning
  • History and the Social/Behavioral Sciences
  • Humanities and Fine Arts
  • Human Diversity
  • Global Perspective
  • Ethical and Civic Responsibility
  • People and the Environment


Transfer students who are not interested in completing an associate degree at Itasca may complete the 40-credit Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC). Students who complete the Associate in Arts (AA) degreeat Itasca will have fully met the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum general education requirements. Students must have a cumulative GPA of 2.0 for both the MnTC and AA degree. Transfer courses with grades of A-D will be included in the GPA calculation for the MnTC.
