SMSU bands undergraduate on-campus tuition and fees. For students who are enrolled in 12 to 18 credits, tuition and fees will be charged at a flat rate as shown below. On-campus undergraduate students enrolled in fewer than 12 credits will be charged on a per credit basis. Undergraduate students taking more than 18 credits will pay the banded rate for the first 18 credits plus the per credit rate for each additional credit taken over 18. A detailed explanation of fees is available here.

Online (web) courses have an additional tuition charge of $49.50 per credit for a total online tuition rate of $292.50 per credit. Online courses are included in the banded tuition rates.

Programmatic tuition rates are charged to courses in Studio Art, Introduction to Art, Art Education, Science Labs, and Culinology and Hospitality Labs. These rates may be between $3.10 and $27.70 more per credit. Some courses, such as music lessons, golf and bowling, include personal property or service charges which vary from course to course. These rates are listed in the notes section for each applicable course on the searchable course schedule in student E-Services.

Residents of Wisconsin may wish to apply for reciprocity here. This includes both new incoming freshman and transfer students. You may apply online or print out a form and mail it to the Wisconsin Higher Educational Aids Board address as given on the form. If you do not apply for reciprocity you will pay Minnesota rates for tuition, which may be higher. Tuition rates for Wisconsin residents that receive reciprocity are $243.00 per credit.

Residents Minnesota and North Dakota will receive the Minnesota resident tuition rates.  The residents of Illinois, Indiana, Nebraska, Missouri, Michigan or Kansas can participate in the Midwest Student Exchange Program which grants Minnesota resident tuition rates to students from these states. To receive these rates, indicate the state of legal residence on the application and the student will automatically receive the Minnesota resident tuition rate.

Please see the registration web site to determine if reciprocity paperwork must be completed for North Dakota and South Dakota residents. South Dakota and Wisconsin residents will pay a reciprocity agreed upon rate.

Off-campus tuition rates (for classes taken at a location other than SMSU) may vary depending on the program, mode of delivery, or location.
