What Students Are Saying

2.97 Average Rating
Metropolitan state is a diverse school with supportive community. Been in my first I hard supportive instructors and peers who make my transition from high school to college in smooth way.
Adan from minneapolis, MN
Very easily to get around and understand processes for applying, registering for classes, etc. One of the advisors, however, is very rude and not the greatest help.
