Estimate only. Residents of Minnesota qualify for reciprocity tuition rates. To be eligible, a student must file a current application for the academic year the student wishes to attend the institution, prior to or during the term or semester in which the student expects to receive tuition reciprocity benefits.  The completed application must be postmarked no later than the last day of scheduled classes.  A term or semester is deemed to run through the last day of scheduled classes as published in the academic calendar of the school.  The state agencies will not be financially liable for students enrolled under the reciprocity agreement who have not received prior approval and certification by the responsible agency. Minnesota reciprocity rates will not be finalized until July.
