Tuition and Fees for Your Program

Tuition and fees vary by program at Saint Mary’s University of Minnesota. Saint Mary’s is committed to providing an affordable graduate-level education. We strive to keep tuition and fees as low as possible while delivering an excellent private education.

Degree-seeking students who are enrolled at least half time may be eligible for financial aid and scholarships to help offset the cost of tuition.

Tuition, Fees, and Textbooks

Students are required to pay the current tuition rate for all classes taken toward their degree. The tuition is based on the tuition rate of the program through which the course is offered.

Saint Mary's University of Minnesota reserves the right to revise tuition payment policies at any time. Should this occur, students will be notified prior to the effective date of the changes.
