Cost of Attendance, Tuition and Fees

St. Cloud State’s flat-rate tuition allows full-time undergraduate students taking 12-18 credits to pay one flat rate for their tuition. In that 12-18 credit band, students can take more credits without paying more tuition, increasing their ability to graduate on time. Fees vary at different credit loads.
