Tuition & Financial Aid Considerations

The Individualized Studies major provides several benefits to students seeking to complete a unique bachelor’s degree while balancing their many other commitments.

  • The program’s format provides greater flexibility and accessibility for working students.
  • Academic advisors are experienced in working with adult students and provide individualized services and support to meet the unique needs of each student.
  • Technologies that enhance the online teaching and learning experience continue to be incorporated and maintained to ensure the highest quality experience possible.

In order to offer these specific benefits, you may find yourself facing unique tuition and financial aid considerations.


Tuition & Fees

Learn about undergraduate tuition and fees to view both the full-time and per-credit rates that apply. Please call the Student Accounts office at 507.457.5076 for more information.

To meet your unique needs, you may certainly explore equivalent coursework from other Minnesota State Colleges and Institutions. If you elect to do this, these courses will follow the tuition and fee rates of the college/university and campus at which the course is taken.

All tuition is subject to change by the Minnesota State College and University Board.


Financial Aid While Attending More Than One Minnesota State Institution

WSU will coordinate the review, approval and disbursement of financial aid for coursework within the Minnesota State system.

Once financial aid is dispersed, students taking coursework at any other Minnesota State institutions for a given semester are responsible for making payments for those courses directly to the appropriate institution(s).

Students will need to complete a Financial Aid Consortium Agreement each semester they take coursework at both WSU and another institution.

If a change is made to a student's schedule that voids information that was previously submitted on a Consortium Agreement, a second Consortium Agreement must be submitted.

For example, if a student drops or changes sections of a course that was listed on an initial Consortium Agreement, a second should be submitted that notifies the Financial Aid office that a change has been made.

For more information about financial aid processes, contact the WSU Financial Aid office at 507.457.5090.


eTranscript Request

If you take courses at another Minnesota State school, they will not show up on your WSU transcript until you request them to be retrieved from the school from which you have taken them.

After you have finished a semester and your grades are posted at all institutions, complete the online Transcript Request Form to have your grades brought into your WSU student record.

This form is not a request to have WSU provide you with an electronic version of your WSU transcript via e-mail or to mail a copy of your WSU transcript.

Any questions about this process or the status of a transcript evaluation should be directed to the Warrior Hub.
