Graduate Tuition
To calculate correct tuition and fees, please use our online calculator located at or click on the calculator image at left.


All financial obligations to the university must be paid prior to the due date at the beginning of each semester unless arrangements have been made with the Business Office. A student is not officially enrolled for an academic semester until all tuition and fees have been paid. VCSU enrolled students may view their account balance and activity by accessing the VCSU website and click on the Campus Connection button, enter their user ID and password. Since Valley City State University is a state-supported institution governed by the State of North Dakota, tuition and fees may be changed by the Board of Higher Education or by the State Legislature at any time.

The University employs financial aid crediting as a means of delivering student financial aid. Under this process, financial aid awards to a student are applied as credits to the student's account with the University, rather than being processed as payments to the student. After aid is credited any balance owed by the student must be paid according to the general guidelines presented above. If financial aid credited exceeds the amount owed by the student, a refund check will be issued to the student.

Refund Policy Tuition refunds will be made to students who withdraw officially from the University according to the refund schedule. Requests for official withdrawal are made through the Office of Student Academic Services. Students receiving financial aid must also contact the Director of Financial Aid to develop a repayment plan. The refund is defined as the difference between the amount paid towards institutional charges (including financial aid and/ or cash paid) and the amount the school can retain under the appropriate refund policy.

Tuition Refund Schedule Refunds will be calculated on a percentage basis up to the 60% point in the semester. Please view the refund schedule or the VCSU Business Office online schedule at:

NOTE: This Tuition Refund Schedule is subject to change at any time.
