Hey Neighbor, Come on Over

If you live in another state, you’ll receive the Resident Tuition Scholarship, which means that you’ll pay about the same amount to attend WSU as someone from Minnesota.

Minnesota also has reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota.

You’re encouraged to apply for reciprocity because this program might give you an even better deal than the Resident Tuition Scholarship.
