Transfer & Articulation Agreements


Program to Program

To assist students in the transfer process, Minnesota West has partnered with many other colleges to provide program-to-program articulation agreements. These agreements should be used as a guide. Our programs and courses are transferrable to locations other than the ones listed; and we are continually outreaching.

Should you have any questions about a program articulation agreement or wish to create a new program articulation agreement with Minnesota West, please contact our transfer specialist, Beth Bents at 507-372-3418 or beth.bents@mnwest.edu.
