START HERE. GO ANYWHERE.

After you graduate from the Dougherty Family College, you’ll be ready to take your next step. During your second year, our college transfer counselors will help you prepare for your transition to a four-year college.

Continuing at St. Thomas

If you graduate from the Dougherty Family College with a 2.5 GPA or above and are in good standing with the dean, you earn automatic admission into the four-year degree program at St. Thomas. You can remain a Tommie and earn your bachelor’s degree in your chosen major. Students need to apply separately for financial aid and scholarships to determine individual aid packages.

Minnesota Transfer Curriculum

Our courses were designed to align with the Minnesota Transfer Curriculum. This means your coursework at Dougherty Family College will count toward your four-year college degree if you transfer to the University of St. Thomas and should be recognized by colleges or universities in the Minnesota State System.
