REMEMBER! MIDWEST STUDENT EXCHANGE PROGRAM If you're a Minnesota resident, you're eligible for reduced tuition at a limited number of Midwest public and private schools and programs of study in Michigan, Missouri, Kansas and Nebraska. Students in the Midwest Student Exchange Program (MSEP) pay up to 150 percent of the resident tuition rate (which is still below the non-resident rate) at participating public schools or receive a 10 percent reduction in tuition at participating private schools. More information on this program can be found at:, the website for the Minnesota Office of Higher Education or 



REMEMBER! TUITION RECIPROCITY Minnesota has ongoing reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota and the Canadian province of Manitoba. The agreements reduce non-resident tuition prices and eliminate non-resident admissions barriers for residents of each state who attend a public institution in the other state. First, apply for admission to the participating reciprocity college or university. You do not have to apply for reciprocity at the same time. Second, apply for reciprocity online or fill out a paper application. New applications are available each April for the following academic year. Your best insurance for receiving the reciprocity tuition price at the time of registration is to apply during the spring or summer before classes start in the fall. More information on this program and a link to the reciprocity application can be found at:, the website for the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
