WSU is proud to be one of the most affordable college options in Minnesota. And we’ll do everything we can to keep it at a reasonable cost.

If you live in another state, you’ll receive the Resident Tuition Scholarship. This means that you’ll pay about the same amount to attend WSU as someone from Minnesota.

Minnesota also has reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota.
