Net Price Calculator

Keep in mind: Calculations reflect tuition and fees for the 2023-2024 academic year. The University also awards a number of merit-based scholarships, which are not factored into the Net Price Calculator for most students (users from outside of MN and reciprocity states will see an estimated scholarship amount on their calculation). Merit-based scholarships are awarded based on an overall assessment of a complete freshman admission application. Please visit our scholarships page for more information on these merit-based awards.
