Some courses are listed in two categories and may be used to meet the requirement in both categories. However, the credits may be counted only once toward the total. If credits taken do not total 42, the student must take additional credits (from any Liberal Education category). Forty credits must be from Categories 1 through 10.
Courses not approved for Liberal Education will generally not be accepted as substitutions for approved courses.
For students transferring out of BSU to other state institutions, the MnTC will be validated with the completion of Categories 1 through 10 and a minimum of 40 credits. Completion of individual categories also transfer within MnTC.
