Tuition and Billing
It's very important to understand how much college costs and exactly how to go about paying your college bills. Tuition is set by the Minnesota State Colleges and Universities Board of Trustees; some programs have differential tuition costs to offset program expenditures. Fees are in addition to tuition and may vary depending on the campus and program.
- Make sure your tuition and fees are paid (or you have met minimum payment criteria) by the due date before the beginning of each semester. See: Billing & Payment
- Paper invoices are not sent by mail: students are responsible for checking their accounts online for updates and new term balances.
Whether you're just starting out in college, or continuing your college career, you're probably concerned about paying for college! Unless you can afford to pay for everything yourself, you will need to find other sources of funding to cover college costs, such as tuition, fees, books, supplies, tools, and living expenses.
- Our financial aid department will help you with student loans and grants. The first step is filing the FAFSA. Make sure you file the FAFSA every year, not just your first year in college. See: How to Apply
- Minnesota State College Southeast Foundation offers Fall and Spring Semester scholarships. Be certain to apply for Foundation scholarships by the deadlines (June 1 for Fall, September 1 for Spring). See: Foundation Scholarships
