Tuition


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

  • Degree or other program registration
  • Enrollment level
  • Residency status
  • Residency in a state or province with a reciprocity agreement
  • Citizenship of a Freely Associated State

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 handbook. This handbook 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 rates are the same for summer, fall, and spring terms. However, non-degree/guest undergraduate and non-degree/guest departmental masters students are charged resident tuition per credit during the summer.

Citizen of a Freely Associated State

Effective July 1, 2024, citizens of the three Freely Associated States: the Federated States of Micronesia (FSM), the Republic of Palau, and the Republic of the Marshall Islands (RMI), are charged the same tuition rate as Minnesota residents.
