Are you looking to transfer to Mayville State University? Mayville State University has developed program articulation agreements with several institutions to aid in the transfer process. If your institution is not included, Mayville State will evaluate your transfer credits on a course-by-course basis. Check out Mayville State's Transfer Evaluation System (TES) for course equivalencies to see how your credits may transfer.

As defined in Policy M402.4-Admission Policies for Transfer Applicants, transfer applicants are defined as those individuals who have previously attended one or more post-secondary institutions following high school graduation, including those who have earned a diploma, certificate, associate degree, or a previous bachelor's degree.  At Mayville State, credits do not expire!  Your credits will transfer from accredited institutions, even if you completed coursework 10, 15, or 25+ years ago!  

You must be in good academic standing at your previous institution and have no holds or non-releasable transcripts at all former colleges or universities you have attended.

A transfer applicant who has completed less than 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of transferable credit shall be considered as a beginning freshman applicant. Admission decisions regarding these applicants are governed by Policy M402.2-Admission Policies for Beginning Freshmen.
