Who's Eligible for Tuition Reciprocity Benefits?
If you're a Minnesota resident (including eligible undocumented students), you're eligible for reciprocity if you attend any North Dakota public college or university. If you're a North Dakota resident, you're eligible if you attend any Minnesota public college or university. However, effective fall 2006, first-time enrollment in some professional programs may be limited or excluded, although some professional programs may still voluntarily offer lower tuition rates to students from a neighboring state outside of the formal reciprocity agreement. Check with the college or university you plan to attend for information about tuition charges.
What Rate Do You Pay?
If you're an undergraduate student from Minnesota and attending:
- North Dakota State University or the University of North Dakota, your tuition will be what you'd pay if you were attending a Minnesota State University.
- Another North Dakota public four-year school, your tuition will be slightly higher than the North Dakota resident rate.
- A North Dakota public two-year school, you'll pay approximately the same tuition as if you were attending a Minnesota community or technical college.
If you're an undergraduate from North Dakota attending a Minnesota public college or university, you'll pay the Minnesota resident tuition rate.
