Will my credits transfer to BSU?

In most cases – yes! Especially if you earned them from a Minnesota State college or university. We know that students take all kinds of paths to reach BSU, and have earned credits in many ways and from many institutions. Our goal is to provide you the best possible transfer credit outcome. Please see our Transfer Credits page for more information.

How long will it take to graduate?

Most bachelor’s degree-completion programs can be done in two years at a full-time pace, and depending on how many credits you’re transferring. Most programs can be started in any semester, including summer.

How much will this cost?

All BSU students, regardless of your state of residence, pay the same low in-state tuition rate. Enroll full time and gain the benefit of our banded tuition (credits are tuition-free above 12 and up to 18), or take classes part time and continue to work, raise your family, and take care of business.
