Students Not Currently Enrolled at Minnesota State Mankato

Summer is a good time to get a head start on college credits or to enroll in classes that fill quickly in the fall. Minnesota State Mankato welcomes all eligible students to take summer courses as a non-degree seeking student.

How to Register for Summer Classes

  1. Apply for admission as a non-degree seeking student.
  2. Select “Complete courses, but not a degree” when asked about your educational intent.
  3. The Star ID and password you create when applying for admission are the credentials you will use to register for classes; take a screen shot of them and save it!
  4. After we process your application you will receive an email notification. Once you have been admitted you can register for classes.

If you don’t see a class you need or if a class you want to register for is full, don’t give up. In many cases, we will be adding courses or opening additional sections. You can request a class or to be added to a waitlist by sending an email to
