Welcome to Normandale Community College! We are proud to be a part of your educational journey. As a college that specializes in the scholarship of teaching and learning, Normandale provides academic, career-focused, and interest-based programs to help you work toward achieving your goals.

Normandale is the largest community college in Minnesota with a credit enrollment of 13,793, yet because of the great work of our faculty and staff, it still maintains a small college feel. Our campus has individuals from a variety of backgrounds, identities, experiences and beliefs, and it is the acceptance and appreciation of these differences that enhance our community.

Through more than 70 degrees and certificates, over 700 academic courses, and hundreds of continuing education programs, we are certain you will find something that fits your needs.

We have a large selection of two-year degrees at Normandale and the highest total of pathway degrees in the Minnesota State system. We are also one of the top transfer institutions for the University of Minnesota and private colleges and universities around the state. We are recognized by transfer colleges, universities and employers throughout the Midwest for providing excellent preparation for upper division academic studies and the workplace.

In addition to academic excellence, we offer a variety of student life activities that include clubs, Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, student government, recreational sports, and other organizations.

We are truly dedicated to our mission of ensuring you the highest quality education possible. The most important aspect of your time here at Normandale is your success. We want you to know that service to students is our primary focus, and we strive to create futures and change lives.

We invite you to take an active role in your college experience, and please remember, "Normandale is your college and your community."
