Step 2: Send Documents

If you attended any other college or university since attending Minot State University, please request your official transcript(s) be sent to Minot State from those institutions. If you attended a North Dakota University System (NDUS) institution, we can retrieve your academic transcripts for you.

North Dakota University System

It is not necessary to request transcripts if you attended the following North Dakota University System (NDUS) institutions:

  • Bismarck State College
  • Dakota College at Bottineau
  • Dickinson State University
  • Lake Region State College
  • Mayville State University
  • North Dakota State College of Science

We will be able to retrieve your academic transcript(s) from your previous NDUS institution(s) at no charge to you. However, you will be notified if you have any holds on your academic transcripts for outstanding debt owed to a NDUS college or university. No refunds will be granted for individuals who inadvertently request transcripts to be exchanged between NDUS institutions.
