Your tuition at the University of Minnesota is assessed according to your:

  • Enrollment level
  • Residency status
  • Residency in a state or province with a reciprocity agreement

If there is uncertainty on whether you are considered a Minnesota resident, or if you believe that your residency has been inappropriately classified, you can review Residency, Reciprocity, and Tuition Exemption booklet. This booklet contains the University's official policy and an application for resident evaluation.

The University has reciprocity agreements with the states of Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the province of Manitoba, Canada. If you are a resident of any of these states or province, you may qualify for reciprocity tuition rates, which are lower than nonresident tuition rates and, in some cases, comparable to resident rates.

Tuition cost varies based on your enrollment status.

  Resident Non-resident
Per credit $457.54 $534.47
13 or more credits flat rate* $5,948.00 $6,948.00

*per semester
