Red Lake Nation College is a community college on the Red Lake Indian Reservation in Red Lake, Minnesota. It is a two year tribal college and is a candidate for accreditation through the Higher Learning Commission; the enrollment is 150 students. The RLNC is supported by elders and community members who speak the Anishinaabe language and who understand the history of the Red Lake Nation.


RLNC is a member of the American Indian Higher Education Consortium (AIHEC), which is a community of tribally and federally chartered institutions working to strengthen tribal nations and make a lasting difference in the lives of American Indians and Alaska Natives. RLNC was created in response to the higher education needs of American Indians. RLNC generally serves geographically isolated populations that have no other means accessing education beyond the high school level.[1]
