MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The University of Minnesota said it is looking to accept fewer transfer students, a plan that’s not going over well with the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.

According to the Pioneer Press, the U of M wants to trim transfers by eight percent over the next few years.

That breaks down to about 300 students.

The school said it will eliminate some volatility in transfer numbers that makes it hard to properly dispense resources.

But MnSCU officials said the plan hurts under-represented students and limits the state’s commitment to improve access to four-year degrees.
