Tuition rates are based upon your residency status. A Minnesota resident pays a certain amount for tuition, while a non-Minnesota resident pays a different amount.

When you first become a Minnesota State University, Mankato student, the Admissions Office sets your residency status based upon the information they have. Your status usually does not change over your college career.

Tuition rates are also affected by having reciprocity from another state or participation in the Midwest Student Exchange Program.

If you are a veteran paying non-resident tuition, you should read this information.

Detailed residency information can be found [PDF] here (103 KiB)

If you believe that your residency status is incorrect, you can request to have it changed by filing an [PDF] appeal form (159 KiB) in the Office of the Registrar.
