St. Cloud State University has developed partnerships with two-year Community and Technical Colleges throughout Minnesota to provide place-bound students the opportunity to earn four-year bachelor and master’s degrees in their home communities through face-to-face classroom interaction with University faculty. Current off-campus degree opportunities are available through the Portal Program with Anoka Ramsey Community College (Coon Rapids, MN) and Ridgewater College (Willmar, MN).

Pathways for Incarcerated Students
St. Cloud State University’s Pathways for Incarcerated Students program offers students the opportunity to earn a degree or to simply take courses for personal growth and development.
St. Cloud State University (SCSU) was established in 1869 and is the second-largest university in Minnesota. For more than 40 years, SCSU’s Center for Continuing Studies has offered access to the university’s high quality academic courses through correspondence study.
Today, St. Cloud State University offers incarcerated students access to these same academic courses through the Pathways program. Students can choose to pursue an Associate in Arts or Associate in Elective Studies degree entirely by correspondence study. Courses are facilitated by experienced faculty who share the Center’s vision of providing access to students who cannot attend class on campus.
Students who are admitted to the University through Pathways for Incarcerated Students become part of St. Cloud State University’s long-standing tradition of excellence and opportunity.
