University of Minnesota sees a drop in out-of-state numbers after nonresident tuition increases


October 12, 2018

Fewer freshmen from outside the state are studying on the University of Minnesota’s Twin Cities campus this fall after two years of double-digit nonresident tuition hikes.

The number of new students from states that do not have reciprocity agreements with Minnesota dropped by a quarter as their tuition rate jumped 15 percent, to $28,730 a year. Now, President Eric Kaler is proposing a 10 percent out-of-state tuition increase next fall. That’s scaling back an earlier plan to go up another 15 percent, which officials now deem too risky.
