There is no separate application for this grant.

M State's Business program has an articulation agreement with Minnesota State University Moorhead, University of Mary and University of Minnesota, Crookston . Graduates from M State's program can transfer seamlessly into MSUM's bachelor degree program's in Business Administration and Project Management, University of Mary's Business: Management Concentration and UMC's Business Management BS.
Articulation agreements ensure that students completing specified coursework or degree programs at M State will transfer into designated programs at partner universities/colleges per the terms of the agreement. This cooperative effort eliminates or minimizes the questions and confusion that sometimes accompany transfer and allows our students to be confident that their degree from M State will satisfy a substantive portion of the completion requirements for the bachelor's degree at the university/college they will be attending.
