All Minnesota State colleges and universities have waived application fees from Oct. 24 – 31

The 30 colleges and seven universities of Minnesota State will waive application fees in October for all or part of College Knowledge Month, an annual statewide effort to encourage students to apply to college.

“Minnesota State is proud of our commitment to offer all Minnesotans an extraordinary education that is an exceptional value,” said Steven Rosenstone, chancellor. “An important way we keep that commitment is by making it easy high school students to take the first step on their higher education journey. That’s why we are waiving our application fees as part of College Knowledge Month.”

Most Minnesota State colleges and universities are waiving application fees from October 24 – 31. Others – denoted in the list below with an asterisk – have chosen to waive fees for the entire month. And, there are colleges and universities that never charge a fee; those are denoted in the list below with two asterisks.  Application fees for qualified low-income students are always waived at all Minnesota State Colleges and Universities.
