Transferring Credits

Here is some basic information about transferring credits into a U of M online degree program, but we recommend talking with an academic adviser from the college you are seeking admission to before registering for any courses.

How to Register

If you are a U of M student taking an online course from your campus:
You can register as you normally would through the MyU portal. 

If you are a U of M student taking an online course from a different U of M campus:

  • Check with an adviser before taking courses at another campus to ensure the course will meet your general education and/or major requirements.
  • Fill out a copy of the multi-institutional form, and have it processed by your home campus. You will need to consult with your college adviser and financial aid office to complete the application. If you are planning to take online courses from more than one U of M campus you will need to fill out a separate form for each campus.
  • Students currently enrolled on one campus should check with an adviser before taking courses at another campus to ensure the course will meet their general education and/or major requirements.

If you are a non-U of M student taking an online course:
To register for a course, follow the links below for the campus offering the course.

  • Crookston: Contact the Center for Adult Learning to determine eligibility and space availability.
  • Duluth: Follow the instructions on the Continuing Education website.
  • Morris: Follow the Morris online learning instructions for non-U of M students.
