Community College Transfer Guides

Community College Transfer Guides

Over 60% of transfer students start at a community college before coming to Bethel. To help you map out your route to Bethel, we have Transfer Guides from a few of our local community colleges. These guides are intended to help you make the most of your transfer credits. 
We hope that this guide will help students easily and confidently choose courses to take at the community college that will satisfy Bethel University's general education (core curriculum) requirements.
Students who plan to transfer in 30 or more credits prior to starting at Bethel may be exempt from certain general education requirements at Bethel. Students who complete the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum or an Associate of Arts degree before entering Bethel will be exempt from several general education requirements as well. See the Entry Level Standing Grid in Bethel’s catalog for details.
