Transfer of College-Level Credits

Transfers from Montana University System Units, Montana Community Colleges and Montana Tribal Colleges

By Board of Regents policy, Montana State University Billings is committed to facilitating undergraduate transfer for students transferred to us from units of the Montana University System and the three publicly supported community colleges and the seven tribal colleges in Montana.

Block Transfer

Undergraduate students  who have completed, with a cumulative grade-point average of 2.0 (C) on a four-point scale, an approved general education program at one of the institutions noted above, will be deemed to have met the lower division General Education requirements of Montana State University Billings.

Special attention should be paid to Board of Regents Policy 301.5.3 on Minimum Course Grades which also applies to acceptance of transfer credit.  Before Montana State University Billings will accept the courses as applicable for meeting General Education, a student will have to earn a grade of “C-” or better in each of the classes.

Depending on the major program the student selects, there may still be additional lower division courses required to meet published major program prerequisites.  A student may be required to take additional coursework at the upper division level that is part of the approved General Education program at Montana State University Billings.

Associate of Arts and Associate of Science Degrees

A student who has completed an Associate of Arts or an Associate of Science degree with an approved general education component package at another unit of the Montana University System, has satisfied the requirements of this policy.

NOTE:  Students should be aware that Associate of Arts or Associate of Science degrees ordinarily do not have a designated field of study in their title.

Special attention should be paid to Board of Regents Policy 301.5.3 on Minimum Course Grades which also applies to acceptance of transfer credit.  Before Montana State University Billings will accept the courses as applicable for meeting General Education, a student will have to earn a grade of “C-” or better in each of the classes.
