Congratulations on your decision to attend Minnesota State Community and Technical College. Whether you are attending one of our campuses in Detroit Lakes, Fergus Falls, Moorhead or Wadena, or attending online or at an off-site location, your success is our No. 1 priority.

You may be a student who knows exactly what you want to do for your career or where you want to be in life, or you may be a student who is hoping your experience at M State helps you find your path. We are ready to serve you, regardless of where you're at in your educational journey. We have created our processes, our systems and our educational opportunities to meet your goals.

At M State, we are "all IN." You'll see our college's values of integrity, inclusion and innovation reflected in our programs and in the support we offer to our students.

We operate with these foundational values because we want you to succeed in all aspects of your college experience. I graduated from M State because of the dedication of the faculty and staff who taught and served me through the ups and downs of my educational experience. Today, I am certain that our employees believe in you and stand ready to help you in any way possible!

We know that every M State student has a story. Every student who attends M State brings their life experiences and journey, identity and dreams into our classrooms. We are honored you have chosen M State. It is our privilege to guide you in the next phase of your life.

I look forward to hearing your success stories; please share them with me!
