Best First Step Visit Page hero

On-campus and virtual campus tours: 

M State students tell us that a campus visit is a great way to learn more about our campuses in Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls, Moorhead and Wadena. We know you’ll be amazed by our offerings, and our tuition is the lowest in the state. During uncertain times like these, why not choose a college that is virtually right next door and ready to meet your needs, whether that’s online or on campus?

We are currently offering on-campus and virtual (Zoom) campus visits. During your visit you'll tour the campus and learn about the many opportunities at M State. There'll be time for questions about financial aid, programs and majors, scholarships, student life and more.

Sign up for an on-campus or virtual (Zoom) campus tour

Virtual program information and registration sessions:

Please join us for live virtual information sessions on many of our academic programs. You'll hear about the programs from the faculty who teach them, and you'll learn about our admissions process. If you’re already accepted to M State, we’ll help you get registered for fall semester classes. Sign up here for any of these virtual program information and registration sessions.

I chose M State based on the ease of online learning, as well as the specific courses in the Web Design program. M State’s instructors and staff are incredibly helpful and responsive.

After taking PSEO classes during high school, I started my sophomore year at M State in Fergus Falls with all but 22 credits completed. Like most AA students, I dabbled in a bit of everything in terms of subject matter.
