Welcome to your Saint Paul College

Rassoul Dastmozd, Ph.D. President

On behalf of our faculty, staff and administrators, I want to thank you for considering Saint Paul College as your educational partner and your pathway to a bright future. We look forward to working with you each step of the way!

I would like to personally invite you to visit our beautiful campus. Take a tour and see our classrooms and hands-on laboratory and training facilities; talk to our student ambassadors, staff and faculty and experience our wonderful campus community.

Saint Paul College is a place that empowers students from all walks of life and places all around the globe as they navigate their different pathways. Whether your pathway is career and technical training, academic transfer, gaining skills to become a better employee, or enriching your life through life-long learning, we have a place for you at Saint Paul College!

When you visit Saint Paul College, I hope you notice “The student is” document that we have posted around our campus. It is our promise to you, and a reminder to ourselves, that the student is indeed the most important person on our campus – for without you there would be no need for our college. As you walk around our college, I hope you see what I see – that our team of staff and faculty advance the human cause through respect, individuality and civility—it happens here each and every day. We truly care about our students and each other.

Saint Paul College has a tremendous impact on the vibrant City of Saint Paul and surrounding communities. For over 100 years, the College has been here to serve the citizens, local industries and above all else, the students. With deep roots in career and technical education, along with academic transfer, Saint Paul College has prepared thousands of students for employment or transfer to four-year colleges and universities, both inside and outside the state of Minnesota. To date, we have graduated over 40,000 students.

We believe that our success is rooted in the thousands of students who find a home at Saint Paul College every year. Saint Paul College has been ranked the #1 community college in the nation by Washington Monthly magazine in 2010 and again in 2013, for student engagement in active and collaborative learning, student-faculty interaction, and support for learning. If you are looking for a caring, supportive, and nurturing learning environment where dedicated and knowledgeable faculty and staff are committed to your future and success, then Saint Paul College is the right place for you.
