Transfer Students

South Dakota technical colleges and universities welcome transfer students! To make the transfer as easy and seamless as possible, review the below transfer student checklist and access the College Transfer Credits section to help determine which courses will transfer and what credit you will receive.

Scholarships are also available to transfer students. Visit Dakota Dreams Scholarship page to learn more.



Transferring schools can be a bit overwhelming, but Our Dakota Dreams is here to help — starting with figuring out what courses you have already taken will transfer over from a previously attended college or university. Use the equivalency calculators to determine whether the courses you are taking — or plan to take — will transfer to the institution, what credit you will receive upon transferring and the amount of credit that may be allowed.
