Cost of attendance

The University prepares cost of attendance (COA) figures in order to calculate financial aid eligibility for students. If you do not receive financial aid, you may use the following figures to estimate enrollment costs. Your specific tuition and fees charges will appear in your University student account in the My Finances tab of MyU a few weeks before the start of your classes (enrollment period).

Actual costs may differ depending on your academic program, coursework, and personal spending choices.

2018-19 Undergraduate cost of attendance

For undergraduate students, COA figures are based on the cost of enrolling in 13 or more credits per semester. If you take fewer than 13 credits, you will be charged on a per-credit basis.

If there is uncertainty about whether you are considered a Minnesota resident, review the Residency, Reciprocity, and Tuition Exemption booklet. The 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 provinces, you may qualify for reciprocity tuition rates that are lower than nonresident tuition rates and, in some cases, comparable to resident rates.
