The University of Minnesota offers extraordinary academic opportunities at a world-class research university, all for a great value.
When planning for college expenses, you will want to consider "cost of attendance," which is the sum of tuition, housing, and personal expenses (which range from textbooks to travel to toothpaste). When you apply for financial aid, the University will use this "cost of attendance" figure when calculating your financial aid package. This ensures you are aware of all financial aid resources available to you to assist with college expenses. Visit this page for more information about financial aid.
The tuition and fees listed below cover one academic year (two semesters) of enrollment.
|Tuition and fees for new students|
|Minnesota residents - $13,524||North Dakota, South Dakota, Manitoba, Wisconsin residents - $13,524||Nonresidents - $18,774|
The figures above are provided to assist with college planning. Tuition for the 2013-14 academic year will be finalized in July 2013. The exact cost of attendance varies slightly from student to student based on the college of enrollment and courses taken. There is an additional surcharge of $500 for students enrolled in the Carlson School of Management. Fees and charges are subject to change without notice as necessitated by University or legislative action.
Room and board costs $8,000 for double occupancy and 14 meals per week.
Our financial aid office estimates $1,000 for books and supplies and $2,194 for miscellaneous expenses such as transportation, clothing, and entertainment during the 2012-13 academic year. Many students keep their expenses under these amounts by spending responsibly.
Each semester, every credit after 13 is free of charge, keeping costs down for families and helping students achieve graduation in four years. (Students typically take 15-16 credits each semester, or 120 credits over four years.)
