Admissions Checklist for Visiting Non-Minnesota State Student

  1. Apply to Anoka-Ramsey

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

    Be sure to save your StarID and Password where you can find it. You’ll need your StarID and password to access your student email account and other campus information.

    Once you have submitted your application, watch for an email informing you of your enrollment status.

  2. Optional: Begin Orientation and Registration Process

    Visiting students are not required to complete Orientation and Registration, but it is highly recommended in order to be informed on Anoka-Ramsey resources and policies. You are responsible for knowing these policies whether you complete Orientation and Registration or not. Visit for more information on the Orientation and Registration process.

  3. Register for Courses

    Before registering for courses, confirm with your primary college/university if the Anoka-Ramsey course will transfer back smoothly. Anoka-Ramsey is not responsible for determining how the course will transfer back to your primary college/university. Your primary college/university is responsible for that.

    You will register for courses through your eServices account. If you are trying to register for an Anoka-Ramsey course that has a pre-requisite, complete the Pre-Requisite Registration form for assistance in registering for the course. You must meet all listed pre-requisites and/or placement levels.

  4. Arrange for Payment

    After you have registered for courses, pay your tuition and get your textbooks and course materials.
