Minnesota continues to be a “net exporter” of undergraduate students. Although 8,870 first-time students from other states chose to attend college in Minnesota in fall 2016, 14,965 Minnesota residents enrolled out of state — a net loss of 6,095 students, representing the biggest gap in the last decade. Among four-year institutions, our member colleges enrolled the most first-time students from out-of-state. View the full student migration report.
