As an Online Student, It's College Your Way

Online students at Minnesota School of Business enjoy the flexibility of 24/7 access to course material. As Criminal Justice student Lori Miller said about online courses, "I love them. They are convenient because I can sit in my pajamas and do my homework. I can do my homework at three in the morning."

Our distance learners also enjoy the personal attention that has been a hallmark of our college since 1877. Online student services include one-on-one help with financial aid, course registration and job-search processes. Tutoring is free, and instructors are just a phone call or email away.

Profile of the online student

Online students at Minnesota School of Business share a commitment to career education. They are well-organized and self-motivated. Beyond that, they are a diverse group. A single class may include active military personnel, working parents and recent high school grads.
