Registered Colleges and Approved Degrees


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

  • In-state private institutions that offer college degrees
  • Out-of-state private institutions that offer college degrees online to Minnesota residents
  • Out-of-state public institutions that offer college degrees online to Minnesota residents
  • Out-of-state entities, institutions, or individuals that contract with Minnesota institutions to provide training for college credits that can be applied toward a college 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 by the Minnesota Office of Higher Education does 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.

Other Minnesota schools and colleges are not subject to registration, including

The institutions below are approved to offer degrees in Minnesota, either through registration or through the State Authorization Reciprocity Agreement (marked separately). The institutions marked online only offer all degrees and/or non-degree programs exclusively online.
