Tuition & Aid

A BSU education is both accessible and affordable.

Cost shouldn’t prevent you from getting a first-class education. We offer in-state or reciprocity tuition rates to all qualified applicants, not just Minnesota residents.

*BSU features banded tuition. This means that full time enrollment costs one flat rate and is not on a per-credit basis for full-time students. Simply put, the cost of 12 credits per semester is the same as 18 credits per semester.

Students should also plan for additional personal expenses. We also encourage you to visit our Net Price Calculator.
