I have worked primarily with our Health Informatics and Information Management online programs for the past six years. CSS has the premiere education programs in the country in the field of HIM, so it has been a delight to help guide prospective students in choosing a program. We offer a B.S. in HIM, M.S. in HIM, M.S. in Health Informatics, a Joint M.S. in HIM/IT Leadership and Graduate Certificates.
Our renowned faculty and our commitment to values-driven online learning is what sets us apart. Employers in the field of HIM seek out our graduates because they know that they are the highest quality workers in the field that they can find.
The thing that I like the best is the people! It is great to be a part of such a supportive community.

I am a graduate admissions counselor who works with our health science graduate programs including: Doctor of Physical Therapy, Master of Science in Athletic Training, Master of Science in Exercise Physiology, and Master of Science in Occupational Therapy.
We really care about our students, class sizes are small and instructors know our students, which provides a great foundation for learning. Our College community also embraces the Benedictine values of Hospitality, Respect, Community, Love of Learning and Stewardship, and you see those values instilled in everything we do.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my time here at St. Scholastica! I learn something new every day, I am passionate about what I do and really enjoy helping students navigate their path of higher education. I very much appreciate and acknowledge the Benedictine values in my daily adventures. I love the fact that our students, staff and faculty hold doors open for one another, say "hi" when passing in the hallway and that we support each other. We are a very warm and welcoming community and I am proud of that.
Time management is key – if you aren’t good at it now, you will become better based on necessity. Ask for help when you need it – we have a fantastic group of faculty and staff working together to help you succeed in your education. Don’t forget to celebrate your successes. “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.” - William Butler Yeats
I support a diverse range of stellar graduate programs at The College of St. Scholastica including Health Information Management, Health Informatics, Education, Project Management, Special Education, and MBA in Rural Healthcare. Each program is unique and is designed to fit into our student's busy schedules while they strive to accomplish personal and professional goals.
A caring community and commitment to student success sets CSS apart from other institutions. It is especially important in online learning to keep students connected to each other and the larger campus community. CSS does a great job delivering programs that are convenient for students without losing the sense of community we hope to create.
I appreciate the rich tradition and commitment to values-based learning that CSS offers.

I work with the School of Business and Technology, which includes the Business Management, Organizational Leadership, Marketing, Accounting, and Computer Information Systems programs.

Our online programs are very flexible. We offer multiple terms each year that allow students to jump into a program at convenient times, and take time off when life happens. We are also nationally recognized for our Health Informatics and Information Management (HIIM) department and programs. We are colossal leaders in the field!
The social environment is awesome! The Benedictine values of Hospitality, Respect, Stewardship, Community, and Love of Learning are practiced on a daily basis. People here are nice, welcoming, and great to work with. You are not just making connections here; you are also building relationships.

The individual attention that is provided to students.

I work with undergrad Business (marketing, accounting, management and organizational behavior), Social Work and Post-Baccalaureate Nursing. Each one is different in their format and schedule. The similarities between them all is that they are bachelor's degrees and all of them are offered in the accelerated format.
The College of St. Scholastica has a uniqueness to it that goes beyond athletics or a specific field of study. It’s about community and a culture that promotes support for one another.
The best thing about St. Scholastica is the size of the campus. A smaller student body means more personalized attention from faculty, less distractions from large classrooms and a greater opportunity to build relationships with fellow students.
As you prepare for coming back to school, carve out time in your schedule as if you were already in school. Clear your calendar one or two nights a week for several weeks before you begin. This will make the transition smoother.
I work with students at the St. Cloud campus. This means I work with students in the undergraduate management programs - Accounting, Management, Marketing and Organizational Behavior; the graduate management programs - Master of Arts in Management and MBA, the graduate teaching licensure program, the Post-Baccalaureate Nursing program and the graduate Nursing programs.
At the St. Cloud campus, we have small class sizes and are focused on the needs of the adult learner. We want students to be transformed by the educational experience they receive here. Plus, we have free parking!
