DARS Basic Encoding and Transfer Articulation training sessions have been offered on a regular basis since Fall 1999 and are now offered on an “as needed” basis.
Other DARS training sessions have been held periodically, such as Exceptions, String/Convert, and Condition Code training. This advanced training is now offered at the annual Minnesota State DARS User Conference through “mini” or breakout sessions, or by arrangement with the DARS/Transferology Team.
College and university staff needing training should notify the DARS/Transferology Team of their training needs via the training link below and arrangements will be made to fit the needs and time availability of the trainees and trainers.
Third Wednesday/Thursday Open Labs held at the system office in Saint Paul focus on specific training needs identified by those who register to attend, with DARS support staff available to assist. Additionally, we hold Open Labs at the Quarry Center in Waite Park twice per semester. We also offer the option to come to your campus location to provide one-on-one assistance based on schedules and in-state travel availability.
