One Winona State

Limitless possibilities across Winona, Rochester & Beyond

What possibility are you seeking?

Maybe you’re coming from another college or university, looking to be a full-time student. Or perhaps you’re returning to the classroom with part of your degree completed, or with 10 years of experience already under your belt.

Students transfer to Winona State at various points of their educational journey. Depending on where you are, the possibilities you seek may be different. That’s why we offer a variety of options to meet you where you’re at.

And while each of our locations may specialize in different experiences, they both offer you plenty of options and possibilities.
