Planning Guides

Many prospective students come to the MLS program from colleges and universities in and around the state of Minnesota. To assist those students in preparing for admission, transfer guides have been developed for a number of institutions. These transfer guides list course requirements and their equivalent courses at your college or university. Please use these transfer guides to help you select the courses that will meet the program’s prerequisite course requirements.

If your institution is not listed, or the Planning Guide for your school(s) does not list the courses you have taken, please send the following information to for review:

  • Name of Institution where course was completed
  • Course Number and Name
  • Number of credit hours
  • Year and semester taken
  • Course description(s)
  • Syllabi (if available)


 We are currently in the process of evaluating and updating our current planning guides. Please see below for our current selection of planning guides.
