ACCELERATED LEARNING OPTIONS

Minnesota statute establishes a program to raise academic achievement through increased student participation in pre-Advanced Placement, Advanced Placement, and International Baccalaureate programs. The program seeks to expand the breadth of AP and IB courses or programs; increase the number and the diversity of the students who participate in AP and IB courses or programs and succeed; provide low-income and other disadvantaged students with increased access to AP and IB courses and programs; and increase the number of high school students who receive college credit by successfully completing AP or IB courses or programs and achieving satisfactory scores on related exams. The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities grants credit for scores of three or higher on AP examinations and for scores of four or higher on individual IB examinations or successful completion of the IB diploma. In addition, the Postsecondary Enrollment Options Act is designed to promote rigorous academic pursuits and to provide a wider variety of options to high school pupils by encouraging and enabling secondary students to enroll full time or part time in postsecondary institutions. State law limits participation to two years for 11th grade students and to one year for 12th grade students. Students may earn secondary credit or postsecondary credit, but must designate which they wish to earn at the time of enrollment. The secondary credits granted to a student must be counted toward the graduation requirements and subject area requirements of the school district. The department of education must make payments to the postsecondary institution for courses that were taken for secondary credit but not for courses taken for postsecondary credit only. The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities board policy has admissions requirements for the postsecondary enrollment options programs that are more specific than state law. (Last updated 2008)

ADULT LEARNERS

The Minnesota Department of Education oversees the state's adult basic education and GED completion program. The adult basic education program in Minnesota encompasses the following courses and programs: adult diploma, GED, English as a second language, family literacy, basic skills enhancement, workplace literacy, and U.S. citizenship/civics. Over 500 sites are mostly run by public school districts, but also by non-profit organizations, some technical colleges, and state and local correctional institutions. Minnesota state statute (Minn. Stat. 124D.52) states that any school board or governing body of a consortium offering an adult basic education program can adopt a sliding fee schedule based on a family's income, but must waive the fee for participants who are under the age of 21 or unable to pay. As of 2006, Minnesota State Colleges and Universities must recognize and provide academic credit for courses that were part of a veteran's military training as long as the courses meet American Council on Education standards. In 2008, Minnesota State Colleges and University Board Policy (3-35) stated that system colleges and universities begin providing credit for prior learning in non-credit or experiential settings. Lastly, each adult basic education program in Minnesota must develop and utilize a performance tracking system as of 2000. (Last updated 2013).

ARTICULATION, TRANSFER, AND ALIGNMENT

Minn. Stat. 135A.08 passed in 1985, and recently updated in 2010, requires the regents of the University of Minnesota and the trustees of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (MnSCU) to develop and maintain course equivalency guides to ease and encourage student transfer between state postsecondary institutions and develop and maintain a common numbering convention . In addition to legislation, MnSCU has its own policies related to undergraduate course credit transfer, originally passed in 1998 and updated in 2007. Under MnSCU policy 3.21, postsecondary institutions determine exactly what credits can be transferred once students submit an official transcript. Once the student is admitted, the receiving college or university then determines how the course credits will apply to program and graduation requirements. The policy further calls for each Minnesota state college or university to implement a published policy "to address transfer of course credit consistent with system requirements." Another MnSCU policy, 3.37, details a Minnesota Transfer Curriculum (MnTC) available on the Minnesota Transfer.org website (http://www.mntransfer.org/). Designed by faculty, the MnTC is comprised of general education courses reflecting competencies adopted by the public higher education entities in Minnesota. It is to be implemented by all institutions in the MnSCU system, in accordance with system policy, for academic certificates, diplomas, and degrees. All institutions in the system must accept the MnTC, publish its requirements and policies, allow for student appeals, and have an implementation procedure developed by the chancellor. Minnesota was also the first state in the nation to develop policies establishing a comprehensive postsecondary enrollment system for secondary students which encourages 11th and 12th graders to enroll full- or part-time in postsecondary courses, offered either at the high school or on the college campus for either secondary and/or postsecondary credit.

DATA AND ACCOUNTABILITY SYSTEMS

The Minnesota legislature directed the establishment of computerized state information systems. K-12 information is collected as part of a state record system maintained by the Minnesota Department of Education. The Minnesota Office of Higher Education maintains a postsecondary student unit record data system for both public and private institutions that tracks enrollment and degree databases to analyze current and future higher education needs, compares enrollment or graduation patterns among Minnesota institutions and others, describes student characteristics, tracks the awarding of degrees and certificates, and allocates campus-based financial aid. The two data systems are separate because of strict privacy statutes put in place by the legislature, but statutory language was passed in 2007 that will enable sharing of student data under certain circumstances. The legislature has directed that the governing boards of the University of Minnesota and the Minnesota state colleges and universities, in conjunction with their respective campuses, specify performance categories and indicators to be used for policy and appropriations decisions. Each system also has developed its own accountability system. The University of Minnesota's system can be found at www.academic.umn.edu/accountability/index.html. The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities has an interactive web-based dashboard that includes 10 measures at the system, sector and individual institution levels. The Accountability Dashboard can be found at: www.mnscu.edu/board/accountability/index.html. (Last updated 2008)

EARLY OUTREACH PROGRAMS

Minnesota appears to lack overall statewide pre-college outreach goals and objectives and related strategies. At the state level, Minnesota does not have a systematic way to identify and target students, collect student data across segments, allocate funds, evaluate programs, and report data. (FY 2003)

FINANCE

The president of the University of Minnesota recommends tuition and fee rates to the Board of Regents in the Annual Operating Budget for their approval. The Board of Trustees for the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (which includes the state's community colleges) establishes tuition for system institutions and prescribes fees for student unions, state college and university activities, functions, and purposes. Fee statements at all campuses indicate the state-paid portion of the cost of an average student's education in that system by including the statement, "Tuition pays for approximately ____ % of the cost of a student at a public college. The state of Minnesota pays approximately ____ of the average cost for full-time students." Minnesota grants free tuition to any state resident who is over 62 years of age or who has graduated from the state academy for the blind upon compliance with all other requirements. The president of a state university, community college, or technical college may waive the fee assessed to a student applying for admission, if the president determines that the fee would impose an economic hardship on the student or the student's family. Tuition waivers may also be granted selectively to accommodate state law, attract students, offer university education as a benefit to employees, promote cooperation with other higher education institutions, support international exchange of students, and serve humanitarian purposes.

REMEDIAL AND DEVELOPMENTAL EDUCATION

A Board of the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities policy requires institutions to assess basic skills of new entering students; develop statewide minimum assessment standards for access to the college-level courses; and to develop remedial courses to bring students to the minimum standards. The Board selects a common assessment to be used throughout the system and requires a regular review of the placement instrument. Public institutions are required to provide annual data to the Department of Education indicating the extent and content of the remedial instruction. The report also must include the results of assessment testing and the academic performance of students who graduated from a Minnesota district before receiving the remedial instruction. The legislature provides grant funding to encourage all higher education institutions to offer high school-to-college developmental transition programs to prepare students for college-level coursework. Grantees must structure courses no longer than the length of a summer semester and accountability measures are tied to the program.

RESIDENCY

Residency is established by the state legislature and tuition policies are determined by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees along with the Board of Regents. To be eligible for resident tuition benefits, a student must have resided in the state for at least one year prior to the first day of classes. If a dependent, the student's domicile is that of the parent(s). Residence in Minnesota must be for reasons other than to attend a postsecondary educational institution. The policy extends resident tuition benefits to specific students, including: graduate student assistants; students who are recognized as refugees by the Office of Refugee Resettlement of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services; nonimmigrant international students; and active U.S. military personnel stationed in Minnesota and their spouses and dependents. In addition, postsecondary institutions may adopt policies to grant resident tuition benefits to students who are in the top 15 percent of their high school class or who score above the 85th percentile on a national standardized achievement test who reside in states that do not have reciprocity agreements with Minnesota. Additionally, the Board of Trustees has approved special pilot programs at several institutions to allow certain out-of-state students to pay in-state resident tuition rates. (Last updated 2008)

STUDENT FINANCIAL AID

The Office of Higher Education administers Minnesota's statewide financial aid programs. In 2005, financial aid totaling 1.86 billion helped Minnesota students and families pay for post secondary education. Minnesota has two small state-funded scholarship programs that are not based on financial need. In addition to the above programs for college students, the Minnesota State Grant help students from low- and moderate-income families pay for educational expenses at eligible Minnesota colleges or universities. Minnesota also offers scholarships for Native Americans, war orphans, and Veterans. The Minnesota College Savings Plan provides small matching grants for deposit in accounts established for Minnesota children from low- and moderate-income families. For the 2005-2006 academic year, Minnesota allocated 130,921 million for need-based aid and 89,000 for non-need-based aid. (Prepared by the State Higher Education Executive Officers, 2008)

TEACHING QUALITY

In 2005, Minnesota became one of the first states to implement a teacher performance pay system, known as Q-Comp. This new pay system allows teachers in each school district to determine whether the district will participate in the program. Q-Comp is based on the Teacher Advancement Program model and provides for a career ladder for teachers, job-embedded professional development, instructional observations and standards-based assessments, and measures to determine student growth. This new system of compensation is being viewed as a model for other states in efforts to move to pay for performance rather than education levels and years of experience. (Last updated 2008)
