ND & MN Tuition

The north Dakota board of higher education will be asked to approve a new tuition reciprocity agreement with the state of Minnesota when they meet tomorrow (thurs).    Under the agreement Minnesota students attending a north Dakota campus will pay 112-percent of the north Dakota resident rate.   Right now undergrad students pay the higher of the two states’ tuition.    During the 2011-12 academic year the number of Minnesota students coming to north Dakota outnumbered those going the other way by nearly a two-to-one margin.    As a result of the disparity Minnesota made a payment to north dakota for the variable cost of education to the tune of seven-point-one million dollars.   N-d-u-s vice-chancellor laura glatt says Minnesota wants to bring that payment down.

glatt says it’s still far less than what the typical out-of-state rate tuition rate would be.    The agreement allows the “surcharge” to increase to 115-percent for undergrad and 130-percent for graduate students in future years.
