Estimating your costs
What will it cost you to attend the University of Minnesota? You can get an estimate by using the standard Cost of attendance (COA) budgets that are prepared by the University on programs selected for calculating financial aid awards, as required by federal regulations.
COA budgets are based on full-time enrollment for the academic year (fall and spring semesters) unless otherwise indicated. Costs will vary according to your individual student profile. For example, whether you are an undergraduate, living at home or in a campus residence hall or a graduate student living in an off-campus apartment. Your actual costs will also depend on your personal lifestyle choices, as well as your academic program and coursework.
WISCONSIN RECIPROCITY students, please note: If you have Wisconsin reciprocity, you pay the Minnesota resident rate, with only one exception: undergraduates who registered before fall 2008 may pay a different rate. Please select "Minnesota resident" in the student profile residency drop-down menu below.
To better understand how expense categories and standards are determined, go to About cost estimates.
