To help you prepare for registering for your first term in the College of Design, please review thoroughly...
Note: There is no on-campus orientation for students transferring to the College of Design from within the U of M system.
The four-year plan for your major indicates which courses you need to take and when. It works together with the APAS report, which is an online checklist of the degree requirements you have (not) completed. It is your responsibility to monitor your APAS report in order to track your degree progress. If you're not already familiar with APAS, learn about it and view a tutorial here.
CDes will update your APAS as soon as possible following your admission notification. This may take up to 5 business days. If you'd like to see how your classes transfer to your CDes major prior to that, generate a "What If" version of your APAS.
To submit transfer studio courses for review to see if they will fulfill any of your major requirements (as opposed to the liberal education requirements), contact Design Transfer Admissions promptly at 612-626-3690 or DesTrsfr@umn.edu. We will instruct you how to upload your work for faculty review to determine transferability.
Notes: 1) It is not common for faculty to approve transfer courses to meet upper-division major requirements. 2) Non-studio based major courses may be petitioned through your academic advisor once you begin your courses in the College of Design.
