- A referendum in 1894 stated that a school of forestry should be located in Bottineau, North Dakota, to provide, in addition to forestry, comprehensive junior college curricula. Additional one and two-year programs were continually developed, expanding the educational base. The North Dakota Century Code identified the role of MSU-Bottineau as offering programs in agriculture, forestry, and horticulture. This, in turn, encouraged the institution to specialize and expand upon its offerings in the natural resources. In April of 1996, the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education affiliated the college with Minot State University. The name of the school was changed to Minot State University-Bottineau Campus at that time. In 1987, the name was again modified to North Dakota State University-Bottineau. The 35-acre campus of MSU-Bottineau is located on the northern edge of the city of Bottineau. It consists of five classroom buildings, three residence halls, a student center, and three interactive video network studios. MSU-Bottineau The college offers 32 vocational-technical programs or options leading to certificates, diplomas, or AAS degrees. It also offers comprehensive university parallel/transfer coursework leading to AA or AS degrees. MSU-Bottineau is one of the eleven campuses in the North Dakota University System which is governed by the seven member North Dakota State Board of Higher Education.
