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.
