Minnesota has tuition reciprocity arrangements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota, which allows students form these states to pay MN resident tuition rates. For students on WI reciprocity prior to August 2012, you will continue to pay tuition rates that compare with those of a state school in your home state. For students grandfathered in on the Midwest Compact Rates, you will continue to pay Midwest Compact Rates for this school year.

Student's attending Rochester Center may see a difference in the cost of tuition and fees. Please check the official Tuition and Fees site or your billing statement for actual costs.
