Campus Preference & Assignment

Our two campuses allow students an opportunity to learn in an environment that best suits their needs. After Interview Day, you'll have an opportunity to indicate your campus preference.  Please don't hesitate to contact us with any questions about our two campuses or the campus assignment.

The Options

Applicants will indicate their preference for their campus of enrollment following the interview by choosing one of the following options:

  • I prefer the Duluth campus
  • I prefer the Twin Cities campus
  • I do not have a campus preference

Applicants who meet our priority deadline will be placed on their preferred campus if they are offered admission. In the event that one campus fills during the rolling admissions process, applicants the committee wishes to admit will be given a choice to receive admission to the campus with space remaining or be placed on a waitlist for their preferred campus.

Can I improve my chances of admission?

The Admissions Committee admits applicants based on the selection criteria and overall strength of their applications, not on which campus a student prefers to attend. Therefore, your campus selection has no bearing on the committee's decision.
