Earn your bachelor's degree at an M State UCenter

Beginning in January 2019, University Centers will open on M State's campuses in Fergus Falls and Wadena to support students who are enrolled in specific online bachelor's degree programs.

The Fergus Falls campus is partnering with Minnesota State University Moorhead, and the Wadena campus partner is St. Cloud State University.

The two campuses will have centers where staff from M State and its partner universities provide assistance and support for bachelor's degree students who prefer not to travel to a university campus.

For more information, or to get started on your bachelor's degree at M State,contact Alyssa Campion, M State's Director of Admissions and Outreach. M State's UCenters are part of the Bachelor's Degree Partnership Program offered through all seven Minnesota State universities.


Information meetings set on both campuses

Want to learn more about M State's new University Centers? Informational meetings are scheduled for December on both the Fergus Falls and Wadena campuses. Current students, prospective students, M State staff and faculty, and community members are invited to attend.

  • The Fergus Falls campus meeting, with M State President Carrie Brimhall and MSUM President Ann Blackhurst, is set for 10 a.m. to noon Friday, Dec. 7, in Legacy Hall.
  • The Wadena campus meeting, with M State President Carrie Brimhall and SCSU President Robbyn Wacker, will be from 10 a.m. to noon Monday, Dec. 10.

Earn your four-year degree close to home

When you enroll at MSUM or SCSU through M State's UCenters, you can do your coursework on campus using M State technology and internet connections. M State staff will be located in the centers, and each of the four-year universities also will provide support services by staffing the UCenter on their partner campus with admissions, advising and academic representatives on a scheduled basis.

You will have the advantage of a smooth transition from M State to MSUM or SCSU with assistance from familiar faces on a familiar campus.

While these degrees can already be completed online, by enrolling in a UCenter you will have the opportunity to use Spartan Center tutoring services, IT support services and library services on the Wadena and Fergus Falls campuses. You will receive your financial aid through your partner university and will be required to meet admission requirements at the four-year college.
