Welcome Back!

We’re glad you’re planning to attend Anoka-Ramsey again.

Students who have previously attended Anoka-Ramsey, and have not attended for more than two years, do not need to submit a new application to Anoka-Ramsey. Returning students should complete the steps below.

Checklist for Returning Students

  1. Retrieve your StarID

    Retrieve your StarID at StarID Self Service.

    As an Anoka-Ramsey student, you need an active StarID to access your eServices Account, D2L Brightspace, and your Anoka-Ramsey email account. 

  2. Complete Application for Readmission

    Complete and submit the Application for Readmission.

    Please note, if you are a PSEO student transitioning to an undergraduate student at Anoka-Ramsey, complete the PSEO/Concurrent to Undergraduate Request Form.

  3. Submit Official Transcripts (if applicable)

    If you have attended other colleges or universities since attending Anoka-Ramsey, you will need to submit official transcripts from those institutions to Anoka-Ramsey's Records Office.


    If you have attended another Minnesota State college or university, the Records Office at Anoka-Ramsey will retrieve your official transcript for you at no cost. You must complete the Minnesota State Transcript Retrieval Form.


    Students with prior coursework at another college, university, or vocational school should submit official transcripts from each institution to the Records Office.

    Official transcripts may also be delivered to from educational institutions who use an electronic secure, certified PDF option.

  5. Begin Orientation and Registration Process

    Orientation and Registration is required for returning students that have not attended Anoka-Ramsey in at least two years. It’s an opportunity to get a refresher on important information about your classes and the college.
