Welcome to Saint Paul College

Our mission at Saint Paul College is to empower students to lead purposeful lives and discover rewarding careers. Students who complete our programs learn the skills necessary to succeed in the marketplace and provide access to enhanced economic opportunities.

As one of the most diverse colleges in Minnesota, we value equity, inclusion, and social justice. Our commitment to being an antiracist and trauma informed institution is centered on supporting our students, and creating a safe and inclusive environment for everyone. With a student-oriented campus environment, our administrators, faculty, and staff are committed to assisting our students throughout their educational journey.

Over the past ten years, Saint Paul College has been frequently recognized as one of the nation’s top community and technical colleges. This recognition is due to our service to first-generation college students as well as populations traditionally underrepresented in American colleges and universities. It is also due to our program completion rates and low loan burden resulting from our constant effort to keep tuition and other costs as low as possible.

Students considering Saint Paul College can choose from over 100 degree, diploma and certificate programs in Liberal and Fine Arts, Business, Career and Technical Education, Health Sciences, Service, and Science Technology Engineering and Math (STEM) fields. This catalog provides details on those programs, including course offerings, credential requirements, and other important information.

If you have questions about any of the information contained in this catalog, please contact our Admissions staff by calling 651.846.1555, emailing registration@saintpaul.edu, or stopping by Room 1300 near the College’s main entrance off Marshall Avenue.

On behalf of our faculty, staff, and administrators, I want to thank you for considering Saint Paul College as your partner on the pathway to a brighter future. We look forward to working with you each step of the way.
