To meet the varied demands of area students, from high school students to working adults, Minot State University is hosting an open house Nov. 14 in the Stanley High School commons from 4 to 7 p.m. Advisors will be available to review transcripts and provide information on how to begin or complete an undergraduate or graduate degree via campus courses or online courses through MSU. Other assistance will include applying for admission and financial aid, transfer questions and degree planning.
"Of the 3,560 students at MSU, 25 percent are 25 years of age or older," said Kevin Harmon, assistant vice president for enrollment management, in a press release. "As our student population changes, so does its needs and demands. To meet these needs, MSU must be flexible."
Currently, over 32 percent of MSU students take at least one online course, and 15 percent of students are exclusively online learners.
To accommodate student schedules and lifestyles, MSU offers 125 courses after 3 p.m. It also offers online undergraduate degrees in nine different programs, graduate degrees in four areas and certificates in four specialties.
"If individuals are looking for a career change, want to start a degree or finish the one they previously never had time for, they should come to our open house," said Harmon. "They will see how convenient it is to complete a university degree."
