Each institution within the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (Minnesota State) system certifies the courses for the ten goal areas within the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MNTC). Students choose courses in each goal area as required by the institution where they are intending to complete the MNTC. To complete the entire MNTC, students must earn a minimum of 40 credits in the ten goal areas, as well as the requirements for each of the goal areas. Passing grades (A-D) for MNTC courses apply including transfer courses; however, a cumulative MNTC GPA of 2.0 is required to complete the entire 40 credit package. There may be specific MNTC courses that require a minimum grade.
