Tuition and Billing

Whether you are just starting out as a new student, or are a continuing student at Minnesota State College Southeast, you’re probably thinking about how to pay for college.

It’s very important that you understand how much college costs, how to pay your college bills, and what resources are available to help you with your expenses.

Tuition and Billing

  • Paper invoices are not sent by mail. You are responsible for checking your account through Student eServices.
  • You must meet the required minimum payment by the due date to avoid being dropped from your courses.
  • You do not have to pay your full tuition bill at one time.  Learn about the Nelnet payment plan through Nelnet Campus Commerce.
  • Check your student account and email often for important notifications.

Payment Deadlines

Below are the upcoming Payment deadlines and related events for the next 90 days.


Financial Aid

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. Financial Aid Application Process
  • Make sure you file the FAFSA every year, not just your first year in college.
  • Even if you don't think you will qualify, you should still file the FAFSA. You never know!
  • MSC Southeast Foundation offers  student scholarships. Be certain to apply for Foundation scholarships by the deadlines (June 15, 2020 for Fall 2020, September 30, 2020 for Spring 2021). See: Foundation Scholarships
