North Dakota University System Transfer and Articulation Information

General Education Requirement Transfer Agreement (GERTA)
If you're planning to transfer to another North Dakota state college or university, it's now a lot easier to select courses. With the approval of GERTA, you can know ahead of time exactly what will and what won't be accepted as general education courses at another institution.

Common Course Numbering
The transfer of coursework among University System campuses, North Dakota tribal colleges and North Dakota private colleges is made easier by the use of a common course numbering system.  In addition to sharing the same numbers, courses with common, transferable content are identified by the same names and have common course descriptions.
