Tuition Reciprocity

Tuition Reciprocity decorative image

 

Minnesota has ongoing reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, one institution in Iowa, and the Canadian province of Manitoba. The agreements reduce non-resident tuition prices and eliminate non-resident admissions barriers for residents of each state who attend a public institution in the other state.

The Tuition Reciprocity Annual Reports contain more background information about the reciprocity program.
