Funding Your Undergraduate Education

Minneapolis Skyline UMN campus

As you plan for your college expenses it is important to consider the full cost of attendance. The University uses this figure when calculating your financial aid package. Additionally, there are numerous University and College-level scholarships available to you. 

Cost of Attendance

Cost of attendance is the sum of tuition and fees, housing, course materials (such as textbooks), and personal expenses. This figure is important because the University will use it when calculating your financial aid package. One Stop has a Cost of Attendance Estimate Chart, which is updated yearly and provides an example of what costs to consider as you are creating your estimate.
