Experts in Distance Learning

Bemidji State has been offering distance learning programs since 1973. Now with the addition of undergraduate and graduate programs that can be completed entirely online, we’re able to provide even greater flexibility to our Extended Learning students.

Admissions Policies & Procedures (PDF)

Extended Learning students must apply for admission into an undergraduate or graduate degree or certificate program using the same admissions process as our on-campus students. 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 non-degree seeking student.

Once you have been admitted, we’ll consider you an Extended Learning student, and you may register for both on-campus and Extended Learning courses.
