  • How to Apply

    Do not delay! Learning Communities are limited in size.

    *You will need to login with your MSUM Self Service Center login. Utilize the "Forgot Username/ Password?" option if needed, or contact the Admissions Office at 218.477.2161 with problems.

    Learning Community assignments are made on a first come, first-serve basis. Space is limited.

    Applications received after June 1, 2017 will be reviewed on a case by case basis and some applicants may be placed in a Learning Community while others may be placed on a wait list. If you apply after the deadline it could result in your housing assignment being changed.

    Applying does not mean that you will be guaranteed a space in the community. Students placed in a Learning Community will register for the Learning Community common courses when you attend a New Student Orientation.

    Learning Community Applications will be considered of a higher preference than your building preferences submitted in the Housing preferences section on the Housing Contract.

    The building location of the community historically stays the same, however due to renovations and demand in popularity the communities may change location. Students will be notified of the official building location when they are informed of their Learning Community acceptance.

    *Please note that Learning Community participation is an academic year commitment. A $150 fee will be applied to your student account each semester. This fee will provide you with opportunities to attend events in the residence hall, on campus and within the community. The fee will cover admission to various venues if field trips or site visits are offered, cover the cost of food at various events, and provide you complete access to a Dragon Mentor. Please note that each community differs in programs offered and opportunities vary from semester to semester. The fall fee will not be refunded if you choose to change your major within the first semester or if you move off the Learning Community floor to accommodate a new roommate request. If you change you major, it is the student’s responsibility to inform your Dragon Mentor to avoid being charged the spring fee.
