The “Finish Your Degree” Tuition Rate

Undergraduate Day students who have completed at least 108 credits, have a minimum GPA of 2.0 and have filed an Intent to Graduate with the Registrar’s office, may be eligible for a reduced “Finish Your Degree” tuition rate equal to the current academic year’s Adult Undergraduate rate for up to 20 credits.


  1. Students petition for the “Finish Your Degree” tuition rate through the academic/financial petition process.  Petition must include personal statement demonstrating new challenges that have led to financial hardship and a long-term plan signed by an academic or faculty advisor.  The committee views each student’s financial situation from a holistic perspective.  Criteria for meeting the financial hardship requirement must be new and unanticipated and may include (but is not limited to) the loss of the Minnesota State Grant, the loss of federal aid eligibility, or major requirements that extended beyond eight semesters.  Approval is not guaranteed based on one of these factors.  The petition form can be found here.

  2. The petition is reviewed by the Student Standing Committee and Student Financial Services.

  3. The deadline for the petition is the drop/add deadline of the term a student requests the tuition rate.

  4. The tuition rate may not be applied to previous semesters.

  5. The tuition rate will be applied to a maximum of 20 credits. Tuition rate will only be applied to courses required for degree completion as outlined on student’s long-term plan.
