Important Notes on Program Fee
The cost of the program does not vary with the number of credits you take (e.g., students taking 12 credits pay the same program fee as those taking 16 credits).
Minnesota State Grant recipients must take 15 credits to be considered full-time students. An amount less than this will result in the grant award being prorated (i.e., reduced based on the lesser number of credits you take).
Your grants, loans and scholarships apply to the cost of this program. The employee benefit of tuition remission, however, does not.
