Plans are underway to offer a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration in Red Wing at Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical. The program will be geared toward the needs of working adults who want to complete a bachelor's degree. 

"Students will enjoy the advantages of attending a college with dedicated, experienced faculty, personal attention and limited class sizes," said Dr. Paul Christensen, Assistant Dean of the Graduate School of Business and Technology at Saint Mary's University. "Since we're assessing details of when to start the program and what the course schedule would look like, we're encouraging anyone interested in completing their bachelor's degree in Red Wing to visit one of our information sessions."  Dr. Christensen added, "Our goal is to start a cohort of 15 students during the fall 2014 semester."

The public-private partnership will help students manage the cost of obtaining a high-quality college education. Many incoming college students attend two-year schools with the express intention of transferring their credits toward a bachelor's degree.

According to a recent study, completing two years at a community college first, reduces the overall amount a student pays for a four-year degree.

The Bachelor of Science program requires a total of 122 semester credits with 36 credits being upper-division credits offered through this Saint Mary's program. The previous 86 credits can be from Southeast Technical, other colleges, CLEP or DANTES exams, prior learning or any combination of these.

The first step in learning more about the program is to meet with an advisor from Saint Mary's in Red Wing for a degree-planning session. See list below for information sessions, open house dates and degree planning sessions in Red Wing. No appointment is necessary. If possible, bring a copy of any previous college transcripts.
