Valley City State University


Founded in 1890 as a teachers college in the southeastern North Dakota town of Valley City (population 6,500), Valley City State University has built on that rich tradition with a student-focused, learning-centered approach, offering more than 80 degree programs and enabling its 1,300 students to thrive in a personable, accessible and affordable environment. Its small, beautiful campus provides VCSU students with plentiful opportunities for close connections with fellow students, faculty and staff, and for participation in a complete range of student activities and NAIA athletic programs. One of the first "laptop universities" in the nation (each student receives a laptop computer), VCSU continues its innovative use of technology with many online offerings, including several undergraduate majors and a master of education degree program. VCSU alumni are proud of their alma mater and carry forward the university's heritage through success in their postgraduate endeavors. All of VCSU’s programs accept WUE students.
