Transfer Students

If you are planning to transfer to Minot State and apply for federal student aid (grants, student loans, and work study) here is a short checklist to follow:

  • Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) at or add the Minot State School Code 002994 to your already completed FAFSA.
  • Cancel any pending financial aid disbursements by contacting your prior school’s Financial Aid Office.

  • If you expect to receive education funding from any outside agencies such as Vocational Rehabilitation, the Bureau of Indian Affairs, scholarship agencies, or other third party agencies; notify us of the amounts and types of funding you are expecting at and be sure to notify the outside agency of your plans.

  • Contact the ND State Grant Agency at 701-328-2906 or if you received a ND State Grant to see whether or not the grant will transfer.

  • If you are selected for Verification be sure to provide all required documents to the Minot State Financial Aid Office. Your federal aid will not be awarded until all documents have been received. You can view required documents in your To-Do list on Campus Connection.

  • Provide all required admission documents by the first day of the semester. You can view the missing documents in your To-Do list on Campus Connection

**NOTE: Your federal financial aid disbursement will be on hold until you provide all necessary admission documents (which includes all transcripts from previously attended schools - high school, dual credit, college transcripts) to the Enrollment Services Offices.  If you have any questions about the required documents, please contact the Minot S Enrollment Services Office at 701-858-3350.
