Current information can be found on the Tuition and Fees page.

Minnesota Residency

The Minnesota State Colleges and Universities (Minnesota State) Board establishes residency requirements for the entire State University system. These residency requirements pertain only to the payment of tuition within the University system.

Non-resident tuition will be charged to students whose permanent homes are outside Minnesota. "Permanent" means family home or home established for a purpose other than for University attendance.

Initial classification of a student as a non-resident, however, does not prevent reclassification at any time when residency requirements are met. Students desiring changes in residency may obtain specific information concerning residency requirements from the Office of the Registrar.

Tuition and Fees

Current tuition and fee rates may be found on the University's web pages. Please note that tuition and fees are subject to change without advance notification.
