References to the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC)
Throughout the following program pages, the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) will be referenced regarding General Education requirements. The MnTC has specific credit requirements and ten goal areas. Some program areas will have specific general education course numbers listed as required or recommended for MnTC goal areas. Notations such as “Goal 4: Mathematics/Logical Reasoning” will be listed instead of specific course numbers, which means that students may select specific courses from that MnTC goal area to fulfill the requirements of the program.
For example, if a program requires a non-specified, four-credit course in social or behavioral sciences, the program requirement would be listed as “Goal 5 – History, Social Science & Behavioral Sciences: 4 credits.” This means that any four-credit course listed under Goal 5 of the Minnesota General Education Transfer Curriculum could be used to fulfill that requirement.
It may be necessary for students to select additional MnTC credits beyond the minimum number required in each goal area in order to reach the total MnTC/General Education credits required for their degree or program.
The specific courses for each MnTC Goal Area are listed in this Catalog and on our website.
Degree Planners for each individual program are available in Pathway Advising (Room 1340) and within the Catalog links below.
