Tuition at BSU is the same for all undergraduate students, whether you live in Minnesota or elsewhere.
Calculate the Cost
Tuition and housing are the primary investments of earning your education. Individual costs will vary depending on your housing choices, being part-time or full-time, and whether you are an on-campus or online student. We encourage you to visit our net price calculator for a more accurate picture of your estimated costs.
Complete your Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) for the upcoming semester to maximize available funding and eliminate delays in receiving financial aid and scholarships. BSU is committed to helping you find a way to pay for your degree, whether it is through financial aid, scholarships or employment options. If you require any assistance, don’t hesitate to contact the Financial Aid office at 218-755-2034 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you received financial aid at another school this year and you are now transferring to Bemidji State University, you will need to cancel your remaining aid at the other school. Once you have done that, complete the following steps:
- Visit the FAFSA website and log in to your existing FAFSA application
- Under returning user click on “Add a school”
- Add BSU school code 002336 and submit
Once BSU Financial Aid receives all of the required information, we will determine your financial aid eligibility and send you an email once your award letter is available in your eServices account. Award types and amounts can vary from one school to the next.
Visit Financial Aid to learn more about grants, scholarships, loans, and federal work study.
Students coming out of the foster care system may be eligible for the federal ETV (Education and Training Voucher). After submitting your FAFSA application, read more about the ETV program here. The Minnesota ETV contact is listed on this web page.
Living on campus is convenient, affordable, and results in better success rates among our students. Our residence hall rates are competitive with what you’d pay living off-campus, and you can’t beat the short walk from your room to your classes! Visit BSU Housing & Residence Life for more details, and be sure to apply for housing in eServices early for the best options.
