Can I Afford It?

Course offerings at in-state & reciprocity tuition rates

Even graduate students need help covering the cost of their education. Luckily, there are programs to assist in meeting the financial obligations of a graduate degree. And whether you live Minnesota or not, we charge only the in-state tuition rate.*

Consider a Graduate Assistantship!

Students seeking funding for their graduate degree should consider a graduate assistantship. Graduate Assistants receive a stipend and tuition waiver during their appointment. Typical assignments might be teaching introductory classes, working as lab or research assistants, or serving in specific offices of the University.

Financial Aid Options

Whether it is through loans, scholarships, grants, graduate assistantships or our Tuition Reciprocity Programs, Bemidji State wants students to be able to succeed without significant financial burden.

Explore financial aid options, and if you have any questions at all, reach out to the Financial Aid office to discuss your financial plan. We especially encourage you to access their Money Management program, which is a money management resource for today and in the future!
