Minnesota State Community and Technical College has been ranked No. 4 on Intelligent.com’s latest list of the Best Community Colleges in Minnesota. The online magazine also recognized M-State as the college with the “Most Flexible Start Terms.”

Intelligent.com is a free, privately-supported online resource for higher education planning and program rankings. Over 3,000 community colleges were researched for the website’s 2023 report, ranked on a scale from 0 to 100 in six categories: tuition cost, admission, retention and graduation rates, faculty, reputation, and the resources provided for online students.

M-State received word today of its fourth-place spot on the list of the Top 24 Community Colleges in Minnesota. Intelligent.com notes M-State’s “flexible offerings,” which “ensure the accessibility of their programs to as many students as possible. 

For example, M-State offers late start classes for students who miss enrollment deadlines. These late start terms allow students to begin their degree or certification program without further delays.”
