Award Amount

This award provides reduced out-of-state tuition options at an eligible North Dakota public college or university. A student attending North Dakota State University or the University of North Dakota pays approximately the same tuition as if he/she were attending Minnesota State University. For a student attending another North Dakota public four-year school, tuition will be slightly higher than the North Dakota resident rate. A student attending a North Dakota public two-year school pays approximately the same tuition as if he/she were attending a Minnesota community or technical college. Reciprocity benefits will be automatically renewed each year providing the student continues to attend an eligible institution and earned credits in the previous 12 months from the same school.


The number of awards offered varies annually. In 2013, there were 11,234 Minnesota residents enrolled at North Dakota institutions under this agreement.
