Additional Fee Information - 2021-2022 annual tuition costs are based on enrollment in 12 credits per semester. These are general estimates of student expenses and are subject to change without notice. Room costs are based on a double occupancy in Cook or McCulloch Halls. Meal plan is based on a premium plan.

Estimated Annual Graduate Student Costs also available.

*This amount reflects items that will be billed to your Minot State student account, and includes estimated tuition, fees, housing (shared room), and an unlimited meal plan in the campus cafeteria. International students are required to prove funding for additional expenses before an I-20 can be issued. A breakdown of these expenses is provided here (I-20 Tuition & Expenses Requirements). Please note that these additional expenses will not be billed through your Minot State student account, they are simply an estimate of potential living costs. Estimates are subject to change.
