Tuition Rates & Fees

M State establishes a due date each semester for final payment of tuition and fees. Students who have not paid in full, do not have a financial aid deferment or have not established a payment plan risk the possibility of having their registration canceled. The College may grant an extension of the payment due date for students who have filed and are awaiting properly approved financial aid from federal, state or other third-party sources.

Tuition for all M State students is set annually by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees and charged on a per credit basis.

Fees are assessed to students depending on their enrollment status, courses attempted and services offered by the campus attended. Fees unique to a program or a class are detailed in the course requirement list.
