Short-Term/Summer Student

Just interested in taking a class or two at Anoka-Ramsey?

If you’re not pursuing a degree or certificate program, it’s easy to complete the admission and registration process.

And, best of all, you can transfer the credits you earn if you are a student at another college or university!

Taking 8 or More Credits?

Follow the admission steps for the student that best describe you on the Steps to Become a Student page.

Admissions Checklist for Students Taking 7 Credits or Less

  1. 1. Apply!

    • Apply online for admission to the college. There is no cost to apply.

      Once you’ve submitted your application, watch for a letter informing you of your enrollment status.

      When you are admitted, your letter will include important information: your Student ID (STAR ID) and PIN information.

      Be sure to save your STAR ID and PIN where you can find it.  You’ll need that to access to your student email account and other campus information.

  2. 2. Schedule Online Orientation

    Schedule an orientation session early so you have the best chance to take the classes you want – and then you may register for classes. Find important information about orientation here, including what to bring and how to sign up.

    Once you have completed orientation, you can register for classes in person at the Records & Registration Office or online.

    Follow the general new student orientation process unless you are a transfer student, international student or PSEO/high school options student.
