Leech Lake Tribal College is a wonderful institution with some of the finest faculty and staff in Minnesota working here. We are totally accredited by the Higher Learning Commission out of Chicago, Illinois (http://ncahlc.org/) so our credits can transfer to nearly any institution of higher education in the country. With some of the lowest tuition rates in Minnesota, we make earning a college degree affordable.

Leech Lake Tribal College offers AA, AS, AAS degrees, certificates and diplomas. Leech Lake Tribal College is mostly a liberal arts college, although we offer Carpentry and Construction Electricity diplomas. Popular areas of study include Business Management, Law Enforcement, Natural Science, Indigenous Leadership and Early Childhood Education. Grounded in Anishinaabeg language, history and culture, Leech Lake Tribal College is the perfect institution to earn a two-year degree and become culturally competent in the beautiful “ways of being” of the Ojibwe people.

A new 8000 square foot Library will be completed in the fall of 2014. It will be a state-of-the-art facility that will house: a rare book section, study carrels, reading room, computer stations and a classroom. Even as the new Library is being completed, we are planning for the construction of a Recreation Center to house our Intercollegiate Athletic Programs. The college has established both men’s and women’s basketball teams playing in the Northern Intercollegiate Athletic Conference. The Recreation Center will house a basketball court, running track, fitness center, racquetball court and a Wellness Center.

Leech Lake Tribal College is an awesome institution with many opportunities to expand your academic, social, cultural, athletic and spiritual experiences. On behalf of the faculty, staff and Board of Trustees, I welcome you to visit and tour the college and let us know how we may be able to meet your needs.


Don Day,
President Leech Lake Tribal College
