The Regents Scholarship Program covers a portion of tuition costs for eligible University of Minnesota employees enrolled in University of Minnesota credit-bearing courses. The Regents Scholarship covers:

  • 100% of the tuition cost for eligible employees who are admitted to a degree-seeking program and are earning their first baccalaureate degree
  • 75% of the tuition cost for all other eligible employees enrolled in courses covered under the Regents Scholarship Program

For more information about eligible courses and qualifying staff appointments, or to download a request form, read the Regent's policy on the University of Minnesota Regents Scholarship Program.

To register for a course with a Regents Scholarship, bring your completed and signed departmental authorization to a One Stop Student Services Center.

If you receive your departmental authorization after you have already registered, mail, fax, or take the authorization form to a One Stop Student Services Center for an adjusted registration statement.
