Getting started

If you plan to pursue a degree as an Extended Learning student, you must apply for admission into a graduate or undergraduate degree program through Bemidji State University.  If you plan to take a few courses but don’t plan to pursue a degree or apply for financial aid, you may apply as a special student.

Note:  Once you have been admitted as an Extended Learning student, you may register for both on-campus and Extended Learning courses.
