Metropolitan State University (Metro State)
700 East Seventh Street, Saint Paul, MN 55106
Metro State Description
Metropolitan State University is a public university located in Minnesota’s Twin Cities. Established in 1971, MSU has always offered a unique learning environment by encouraging students to create their own degree plans and professors to write evaluations instead of giving letter grades.
While MSU adopted a more traditional style of academics during the 1990’s, their First College permits students to individualize their degrees, majors and focuses. Students that are uncomfortable creating their own academic plan have approximately 60 structured degrees to choose from.
MSU offers not only customizable academic plans, but also fully online programs for students looking to earn their degrees on their own schedule.
Metropolitan State University also houses one of the largest accounting programs in the state, and is widely recognized as one of the best Minnesota accounting programs.
It is also one of four schools in Minnesota to offer Doctor of Business Administration degrees, and the only public college in the state to offer that program.
For students concerned with the price of tuition, books and cost of living, MSU offers financial aid like federal Pell grants, Academic Competitiveness grants, and state and university grants, along with federal work-study programs and different scholarship opportunities.
