Your tuition at the University of Minnesota is assessed according to the number of credits for which you are registered.

The University has reciprocity agreements with the states of Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the province of Manitoba, Canada. 

The U of M Crookston has restructured the tuition policy in favor of a flat-rate tuition strategy which makes all credits above 13 per semester tuition-free. Students taking 13 or more credits will pay a flat tuition rate of $5,090.00 per semester. Students taking 1 to 12 credits will be assessed $391.54 per credit. Students who take advantage of the flat rate and graduate in 4 years will pay significantly less and can save nearly $20,000. To graduate in 4 years at UMC, a student, on average, must complete 15-16 credits per semester.
