  • Reciprocity

    The Reciprocity Program provides tuition reciprocity for students who are residents of neighboring states and provinces that have reciprocity agreements with the State of Minnesota. By completing the Reciprocity Program Application for Resident Fee Status and being approved for reciprocity resident status, students may attend public institutions in Minnesota at a reduced rate, which varies by state or province. Admission requirements are identical to those for Minnesota residents.

    Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota residents are encouraged to file for reciprocity online using the links below:

    • Wisconsin Reciprocity forms: http://www.heab.state.wi.us/
    • North Dakota reciprocity forms: http://www.mheso.state.mn.us/hesod/NDReciprocity/apply1.cfm
    • South Dakota reciprocity information is available at: https://www.ohe.state.mn.us/gPg.cfm?pageID=123South Dakota residents do not need to file an actual reciprocity form. The appropriate rate of tuition will be assigned by the Lake Superior College Admissions Office upon application to the College.
    • The Midwest Student Exchange Program (M.S.E.P.) was established as a means to reduce tuition rates for students and families. It is open to students in the states of Indiana, Kansas, Michigan, Missouri, and Nebraska. Typically, out-of-state students pay non-resident tuition, however the M.S.E.P students pay a reduced rate. All you need to do is apply for admission to Lake Superior College and indicate that M.S.E.P status is desired. The appropriate rate of tuition will be assigned by the Lake Superior College Admissions Office upon application to the college. More information is available on the Web: http://msep.mhec.org/
