M State is happy to offer resources for high school counselors to help students succeed.
Senior students must have a 2.8 GPA, and junior students must have a 3.2 GPA to be eligible to apply to the Concurrent Enrollment Program.
We want students to be successful in the classroom, and the Accuplacer assessment and ACT allow us to place students in appropriate-level coursework. Every student who would like to enroll in a concurrent course must complete the Accuplacer unless he or she has a qualifying ACT or MCA score. The Accuplacer is a web-based assessment that evaluates academic abilities in reading, writing and mathematics. It is not a pass/fail test and does not have a time limit.
Accuplacer, ACT and MCA Score Requirements
Accuplacer Next-Gen Reading - 250 or higher
ACT Reading - 21 or higher
ACT English - 18 or higher
MCA Reading - 1047 or higher
Accuplacer Next-Gen Math- varies based on course: see cut score guide
MCA Math - 1158 or higher (College Algebra)
*Math scores vary based on the math course prerequisites.
The Accuplacer Process
To schedule Accuplacer testing for your students, contact Erin Warren at 218.736.1569 or firstname.lastname@example.org
Concurrent Program Resources:
The college evaluates student satisfactory academic progress after each term. If a student has not met either the college's GPA or completion percentage standard, the student will be placed on warning status for one evaluation period.
GPA Minimum Requirements:
Minimum Required Completion:
Students on warning status are eligible to continue taking concurrent courses. If at the end of the warning period the student meets both the cumulative GPA and completion percentage, the warning status is ended and the student is returned to good standing. If at the end of the warning period a student has not met the requirements, the student shall be suspended and not able to register for one calendar year unless he or she appeals the suspension.

How to request transcripts to a college or university not in the Minnesota State system

How to request transcripts to a college or university within the Minnesota State system
If applying to another institution within the Minnesota State system, students do NOT need to request a transcript online because the college or university will have access to their Minnesota State eTranscript.
