  • Tuition Waiver Applications Due!

    Tuition Waiver Applications Are Due

    MnSCU employees and dependents who are eligible for a tuition waiver should complete the waiver application within 10 days of the beginning of classes. If the waiver is the only method of payment on your account, please complete this form as soon as possible. This will allow Human Resources sufficient time to process the waiver prior to the fifth day of classes (August 28), thus avoiding the possibility of your registrations being cancelled for nonpayment. Information about how to complete a waiver request is available at http://www.smsu.edu/administration/humanresources/?Id=7981.

    Questions about the waiver process should be directed to Business Services at 507-537-6219 or Human Resources at 507-537-6208.
