Visiting Student Application

If you are interested in taking less than seven credits at M State and are not seeking a degree, please use the Visiting Student Application. As a visiting student, you are not required to attend a registration event. You will sign up for your courses directly on the Visiting Student Application and will receive a confirmation with your class schedule as soon as it is processed.

Visiting students are not eligible for financial aid through M State. If you are also enrolled at another college, however, you may be eligible through that institution. Check with your home institution's financial aid department about requesting a consortium agreement.


International student admissions

An international student is defined as a person who is not a U.S. citizen or U.S. immigrant and is seeking admission to Minnesota State Community and Technical College. Permanent residents, refugees and political asylees only need to complete the general admission process. I-20 forms, authorizing admission into the United States for educational purposes, will be issued when all admission requirements are met and applicants have been accepted to the college.
