Residency for Tuition Purposes

Tuition rates are based on the student's state of residence. It is the student's responsibility to check Campus Connection and verify their current tuition rate for billing purposes.

To verify your tuition rate in Campus Connection from the Student Homepage:
click Financial Account > Account Summary >
select Institution Valley City State University
and Account Term for the current Term.

Under Charges, check the Tuition line item to verify your tuition rate.

For students seeking to become a North Dakota resident for tuition purposes:

  • You must apply, provide documentation, and be approved for the ND residency change prior to the deadline for the current semester.

For students seeking to be granted Minnesota Reciprocity for tuition purposes:

  • If you are a Minnesota resident who is enrolling within 12 months of graduating from a Minnesota high school, you do not need to complete a reciprocity application. For reciprocity approval, you will provide your official Minnesota high school transcript to Enrollment Services.
  • If you are a Minnesota resident who is enrolling and has taken a break in semesters or is a transfer student, you do need to complete the Tuition Reciprocity Application.
    • Until reciprocity is approved, students will be billed at the Midwest Student Exchange Program
      (MSEP/MHEC) tuition rate, which is a higher rate than MN Reciprocity. The Minnesota Reciprocity tuition rate is granted only to students that have received approval from the Minnesota Office of Higher Education.
    • After reciprocity is approved, the MN Reciprocity will be applied for the current term and concurrent future terms. You will need to reapply if you have not enrolled within the last 12 months.
