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. Students enrolled in programs that charge the same tuition rate to all students regardless of state of residence are not covered under any of the reciprocity agreements. Check with the college or university you plan to attend for information about tuition charges.
