Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) have a common general education curriculum called the
General Education Transfer Curriculum (MnTC).
The MnTC is shared among all Minnesota two- and four-year public colleges and universities to support the
transfer of coursework and credits in general education.
Goals and competencies include:
- completing 40 credits
- satisfying 1 to 10 goal areas.
The goal areas include:
- Critical Thinking
- Natural Sciences
- Mathematical/Logical Reasoning
- History and the Social and Behavioral Sciences
- Humanities and the Fine Arts
- Human Diversity
- Global Perspectives
- Ethics and Civil Responsibility
- People and the Environment
Any student who anticipates transferring to a four-year school should plan an appropriate program
(both general education and major requirements) with one of the counselors prior to, and during, enrollment
at Century College.
Associate in Arts Degree
Although the AA degree is a general liberal arts degree and no specific major is listed in conjunction with
the degree, many students choose to concentrate in a particular field of study as preparation for
a planned major at a four-year college or university.
At least 40 of the 64 credits must be taken within the Minnesota General Education Transfer Curriculum
An agreement with the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) provides that Century College’s
Associate in Arts Degree or MnTC will satisfy all of the lower-division general education requirements of
any of the state universities.
Individual MnTC courses will transfer into the same goal at any MnSCU college or university. If the entire goal
is completed at one MnSCU institution, that goal will be considered complete at any other MnSCU institution.
Documentation of the goal completion (
DARS report) from the sending college is required.
University of Minnesota
An agreement with the University of Minnesota provides that an Associate in Arts Degree or MnTC will satisfy
the Liberal Education requirements.
Century has agreements with the following private and out-of-state schools that facilitate transfer of the AA
degree and MnTC:
- Augsburg College
- College of St. Scholastica
- Concordia University-St. Paul
- North Dakota State University
- St. Catherine University
- University of North Dakota
- University of Wisconsin-River Falls
- University of Wisconsin-Stout
PLEASE NOTE: These agreements do not guarantee the transfer of every course or eliminate the
need to plan for pre-major requirements.
