Online Orientation Requirements
Before you will be allowed to view Century’s online orientation, you must complete the following requirements:
- Official Transcripts
If you plan to complete a degree/program at Century College, you must send an official college transcript(s)
from each college/university you previously attended. The transcript must be mailed to/dropped off at the Transfer
Student Services Office in a sealed envelope directly from the college/institution.
Please plan ahead, as it may take up to two weeks to receive a transcript from another institution.
Transcripts may be mailed to:
Century College – Transfer Student Services
3300 Century Avenue N
White Bear Lake, MN 55110
If you have attended or are currently attending a Minnesota State College or University, please see the eTranscript information below.
- Unofficial Transcripts
If you are a reverse transfer student or plan to take one course or just a few courses and
do not intend to complete a degree/program at Century College, you may
provide an unofficial or student copy of your transcript(s) from each college/university
you previously attended to determine if you meet Century’s assessment testing requirements
and course prerequisites.
Unofficial transcripts are not retained by Century College once you provide them.
- Accuplacer Assessment Testing
All transfer students must meet Century's assessment testing requirements for Reading,
Writing, and Mathematics and course prerequisites prior to registering for courses at
Century College. Students transferring college-level courses in English, Math and Reading
or who have earned an Associate of Arts or Bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited,
United States college or university may not need to complete some parts of the assessment.
To determine if you have completed transfer coursework that would waive you from completing all
or part of the assessment tests, you must provide your transcript(s) from the college or
university you previously attended.
Prior to orientation, you may review how some of your courses or credits will transfer to
and from Century College by clicking u.select
and choosing the option “equivalencies by school”.
Hundreds of college and university courses, Advanced Placement, CLEP, International
Baccalaureate and military credits are accessible through u.select.
If you have attended or are currently attending one or more MnSCU institution(s),
not including the University of Minnesota, and have applied to Century College,
your official transcripts from that MnSCU institution may be electronically retrieved
by Century College.
There is no cost for this service. Transcripts will not be able to be
electronically retrieved if you have holds on your records from the MnSCU institution
you previously attended including, but not limited to, unpaid balances. It is your
responsibility to ensure that your records are free of holds in order for institutions
to send or electronically retrieve your academic transcript.
When to Notify Century
You must notify the Century College DARS and Transfer Student Services Office when
your records have been cleared for retrieval.
Please contact the DARS and Transfer Student Services Office by email
or call (651) 779-3908 to verify whether your transcript(s) is available. You must also
notify the DARS
and Transfer Students Services Office.
