Transferring Credits to CLC

Transferring Credits to CLC

CLC requires official transcripts to transfer coursework/credits to CLC.

Note: If you are transferring CLC credits to another school, see

CLC has the ability to retrieve MinnState college and university e-transcripts. Note that you must request a University of Minnesota transcript since that is not part of MinnState. If your Minnstate courses are not displaying on your Degree Audit within two weeks of applying to CLC or you have added, dropped, or completed a course, notify

Official transcripts must be requested if you attended a college or university outside of Minnstate or have completed credit for prior learning including Military Experience, AP-Advanced Placement, CLEP-College Level Examination Program, DSST-DANTES Subject Standardized Tests, IB-International Baccalaureate, Credit for Advanced Standing, or World Language Seals and Certificates. CLC accepts transcripts delivered electronically through secured servers including, but not limited to, Parchment, National Student Clearinghouse, Credentials Solutions, and Joint Services Transcript.

CLC awards transfer credit for international credit earned at eligible colleges and universities outside of the United States. Please view CLC International Credential Evaluation Procedure 3.21.2 for more information.

Official paper transcripts may be mailed to Records and Registration, 501 West College Drive, Brainerd MN 56401. Official paper transcripts must be received in a sealed envelope. Hand-delivered transcripts must arrive unopened with the official seal intact. Student copies, emailed, or faxed transcripts are not considered official. There will be processing delays with paper transcripts.

Central Lakes College complies with Minnesota State System Policies and Procedures for evaluating transfer courses and credits, including Undergraduate Course Credit and Credit Transfer and the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (Policy 3.21); Transfer of Undergraduate Courses, Credit, Associate Degrees and the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (Procedure 3.21.1 Part 9); and Transfer Rights and Responsibilities (Policy 3.39).
