Registered Colleges and Approved Degrees


Postsecondary institutions registered under the Degree Granting Institutional Registration Statute (Minnesota Statutes 136A.61 - 136A.71) are:

  • Minnesota private colleges and universities that offer associate or higher degrees
  • Out-of-state private institutions offering associate or higher degrees in Minnesota
  • Out-of-state public institutions offering postsecondary education in Minnesota
  • Non-Minnesota individuals, entities or institutions which contract with Minnesota institutions to provide training for which credits may be awarded that can apply toward a degree

Registered institutions must have approval:

  • To grant degrees for programs offered in Minnesota, and
  • To use the terms "academy", "institute", "college", and "university" in their names.

Registration and approval are not the same as accreditation. Many registered or approved institutions also are accredited by national or regional accrediting bodies.

Registration and approval do not assure that credits earned can be transferred to other institutions or that the quality of education would meet the standards of every student, educational institution or employer.

Only registered institutions are shown below. Other Minnesota schools and colleges are not subject to registration, including
