Tuition and Fees

Tuition at the University of Minnesota is assessed according to your student classification and program, your residency status, and whether you come from a state or province with which the University has a reciprocity agreement. See the Factors Affecting Tuition tab below for more information

For purposes of tuition and fee assessment, May Session and Summer Session are treated together as a single Summer Term. In addition to tuition, you may be charged fees based on a variety of criteria.

Financial Aid

To be eligible for Office of Student Finance (OSF) Summer Term financial aid you must be officially admitted to a U of M Twin Cities degree program effective for Summer Term 2017. Summer is part of the 2016–2017 financial aid cycle. If you did not file a 2016–2017 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) form for last fall and/or spring terms, you must file one to receive summer aid. You may not use 2017-2018 financial aid eligibility to pay for summer charges. May Session and Summer Session are combined for purposes of determining your eligibility.

Financial aid is not available for non-degree students.
