Why did you Choose St. Cloud State’s Higher Education Administration Program?

I chose SCSU because of the online format, cost, and flexibility. Most programs I was considering required traveling to campus Friday-Sunday each month or were only available every other year – this wasn’t really an option for me. I knew I wanted to get started in fall 2020, and SCSU had that option. They also offer online assistantships, which has allowed me to grow as a professional and provided me with new opportunities in a different area of higher ed.

What Advice Do You Have For Others?

I think the biggest piece of advice I have is making time to connect with your cohort. There are weekly zoom meetings that are optional for one of the courses, and I try to attend to not only learn, but to connect with my classmates.
