Minnesota State system freezes tuition for fall semester

Wednesday, the Minnesota State college and university system instituted a tuition freeze for the upcoming fall semester.

“The undergraduate tuition freeze for fall semester is a sign of our commitment to affordability and a compelling incentive for students,” said Devinder Malhotra, chancellor of Minnesota State. “Every one of our 30 colleges and seven universities stands ready to welcome students back fall semester and are prepared to help them achieve their educational goals — whether they are just starting college, continuing on their educational journey, or going back to school to retool their skills for new job opportunities.”

Minnesota State says its colleges and universities will offer a mix of on-campus and online courses in the fall amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The system said strategies for learning and campus activities, social distancing, and cleaning and and disinfecting are being developed and will be refined as federal and state guidance changes.

The University of Minnesota Board of Regents also approved a tuition freeze in April.
