Non-UMN degree seeking student will pay the same tuition costs. Please visit the UMN webpage for How to Register as a Non-degree seeking student or Continuing Education for Non-degree seeking students (both undergraduate and graduate).

Students can expect to pay

  • Tuition - summer tuition is based on number of credits regardless of full-time versus part-time student status; in-state versus out-state tution
  • Course fees pay for transportation (gas), lodging, meals, and basic supplies needed for the course (e.g. maps, field notebooks)
    • Course fees are calculated using estimated costs and enrollment for the upcoming summer.
    • If total expenditures for the course are less than total course fees collected and the difference for each student is over $10, each student will receive a reimbursement for the overage.
  • Student Fees can include
    • Collegiate Fee (College of Science & Engineering, regardless of UMN BA or BS program)
    • Student Services Fees are based on # of credits; whether not student paid fees the previous spring semester; and whether or not health insurance is needed (e.g. non-UMN student without insurance).
    • University Transportation Fee
