Minnesota State leaders report plethora of positives thanks to 2023 higher education law

Total enrollment projections for the 26 colleges and seven universities in the Minnesota State system show a slight increase to more than 106,000 full-time equivalent students last month. Minnesota State officials say minimal growth is also projected next school year.

In providing updates on the budget and other issues, he said enrollment is up 2.65% over last fall, the first time in 13 years system enrollment has grown.

The higher education law that took effect July 1 provides the system with $1.87 billion during the 2024-25 biennium, an increase of $331.4 million. That figure includes $289.9 million for operations and maintenance, and $75 million for a tuition freeze for undergraduate degree-granting programs.
