Transfer Student

I have earned college-level course credit at another college/university and now wish to complete a degree/program at Riverland.

  • Complete a College Application
  • Send Riverland your official College Transcripts
    • You will need to have your official transcripts sent from all colleges outside of the Minnesota State College & University System. If you are transferring from a Minnesota State College or University we will access your transcript(s) with your application to Riverland (unless you have an active hold at an institution preventing access).  
    • Official Transcripts can be sent to: 
Riverland Community College
Attention: Records & Registration
1900 8th Ave NW
Austin, MN 55912
