MUS Transfer Core
Transferable General Education Curriculum

The Montana University System Core (MUS Core), described in Policy 301.10 and the Operational Rules for the Montana University System Core, represents a transfer agreement among community, tribal, and publicly-funded colleges and universities in the State of Montana.  It assures the transfer of up to 30 lower-division semester credits for those students enrolled in courses approved within each of the following six areas:

Natural Science
6 credits
Social Sciences/History  
6 credits
3 credits
6 credits
Humanities/Fine Arts  
6 credits
Cultural Diversity  
3 credits

Students may be required to take additional coursework at the upper division level that is part of an approved general education program at the receiving campus.

General Education Council

A General Education Council was established in 2005 to oversee the provisions of Board Policy 301.10, including the MUS Core. With the assistance of the Council, each campus of the Montana University System has developed a list of courses that satisfy the MUS Core.
