ST. PAUL – Students considering their higher education options can apply for admission to any of the 30 colleges and seven universities in the state of Minnesota without paying an application fee for all or part of October in the part of the Minnesota State Week and College Knowledge Month promotions.
“With more than 3,800 extraordinary academic programs delivered in person, online or in hybrid mode, our colleges and universities offer the most affordable and accessible higher education options in the state,” said Devinder Malhotra, Chancellor of the State of Minnesota. “We are very happy to expand this offering and encourage students to take another step towards their higher education goals.”
Minnesota State Week is a promotion designed to educate students and visit campuses both virtual and in person.
This year, Minnesota State Week will take place October 25-31. State education officials say now is a good time to take advantage of the many admissions events taking place at colleges and universities in mid-October and to inquire about available grants and scholarships. .
College Knowledge Month is a statewide college application initiative that takes place in October each year. The aim is to provide high school graduates, especially under-represented students, with the necessary support to apply to university.
Minnesota state colleges and universities will celebrate these initiatives by waiving the undergraduate application fees that students often pay when they apply for admission for all or part of October, depending on the school. Applications can be completed online or by contacting the relevant school.
With the state of minnesota online app, students can apply to one or more colleges or universities in the state of Minnesota by completing the application once.
