Wages were calculated by following the earnings of graduates from Dakota County Technical College through their social security number and Minnesota unemployment insurance wage records. Wage data includes all available data for program completers from Academic Year 2013-2014 regardless of which occupation they entered and is based on earnings one year after graduation for graduates of programs with the same classification and at the same award level. Associate's, Bachelor's and Graduate degrees/certificates are reported separately. Data for diplomas and certificates is combined. Learn more about how this wage data is calculated.

Note of Caution: Wages may be affected by regional labor market conditions, economic cycles, individual characteristics of each graduate, and other factors beyond the purview of each school and its training programs. As a result, experiences may differ from those of past graduates.

Transfer Information

If you're considering enrolling at a two-year college with the intention to transfer to a four-year university, it is important to know which degree path is right for you, and to talk with an advisor about how to make your path as smooth as possible. Associate degree programs vary in transferability. 

General education (Minnesota Transfer Curriculum) courses are the most commonly accepted. Also, courses/credits may transfer from one college or university to another, however, they may not fulfill the specific requirements of your new program. To be successful with transfer to a four-year university for a bachelor's degree, talk to a transfer specialist as early as possible and every semester about your degree plans and about where you wish to transfer. Transfer specialists can also help you if you plan to transfer to two-year colleges.

If you plan to transfer to obtain a four-year bachelor's degree, it is important to know which degree path is right for you:

  • Associate of Arts (AA) degrees offered at community colleges are designed to transfer into liberal arts four-year majors.
  • Associate of Science (AS) and Associate of Fine Arts (AFA) degrees offered at community and technical colleges transfer into specific four-year majors and will likely require completing additional general education courses at a university.
  • Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degrees offered at technical and community colleges are not designed to transfer. They lead to immediate entry into the workplace.
  • Diplomas and certificates offered at technical colleges are not designed to transfer. They lead to immediate entry into the workplace.

Talk to a transfer specialist as early as possible to determine the best associate degree for your goals. Be sure to review your Degree Audit Report (DARS) each semester to best prepare for transfer. Get more help understanding transfer using the tools below.
