UMN System Programs


Credit and Affiliation

UMN System Programs are affiliated programs. Typically, UMTC students receive resident credit for short-term programs and transfer credit for semester/academic year programs (though there may be occasional exceptions based on the program). Your grades for resident credit programs count toward your University of Minnesota GPA, and each course appears on your transcript. More information can be found on the Academic Policies page. These programs utilize the Multi-Institutional process to allow for registration on more than one UMN campus. 

Finding Course Information

Some program websites offer short course descriptions, while others offer full syllabi.  For course descriptions and syllabi, visit the program pages for UofM-DuluthUofM-Morris, or UofM-Crookston programs.

Cancellation policy

Before you apply to or confirm your participation on this program, review the Learning Abroad Center's cancellation policy to inform yourself of the timeline and financial obligations for canceling. You are responsible for the cancellation/refund policy of the affiliated program if their cancellation policy exceeds that of the Learning Abroad Center.
