MetroConnect is an innovative program that allows students to earn select bachelor’s degrees from Metropolitan State University without commuting to our campus. For these programs, you can attend all the courses you need to complete your four-year degree at locations near to where you already are—whether home is on the shores of Lake Superior or in the heart of the Twin Cities.
MetroConnect is a collaboration between Metropolitan State University and community colleges within the Minnesota State system.
After you finish a curriculum of lower-division credits (and become an admitted Metro student), you’ll complete your four-year degree with upper-division credits from Metropolitan State University on campus at our partner institution. Degree requirements—and any eligibility criteria some programs have in addition to university admissions—are found on each program’s page.
