Mayville State’s Extended Learning programs combine the flexibility of online and distance programs with the student-focused instruction of its on-campus programs.

Personal Attention: Distance class sizes are small, often less than 20 students per class section, so that you can receive personal attention from our experienced instructors.

Quality Instructors: The majority of our distance class instructors are full-time, on-campus instructors. This means you are receiving quality instruction from experienced university instructors.

Academic programs: Mayville State University is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). Mayville State University is part of the North Dakota University system, and MSU is one of North Dakota's original colleges, since its establishment within the State Constitution in 1889. For more than a century, Mayville State has been training teachers and other professionals while maintaining the highest standards. 

Affordable: Don’t get stung by today’s skyrocketing tuition prices. Mayville State offers a high quality education at an affordable distance tuition and fee rate of $295 per semester hour.

What’s important for my students is having the chance to advance their careers through research opportunities. They might not get or have access to those at other institutions. They can present their work at local, regional, and international levels. Imagine that scope!
