Tuition changes for 2022-23

St. Cloud State University is moving to eliminate the online tuition differential fee in 2022-23 and incorporating it into the overall tuition for the university. This is resulting in a tuition change for some students. Learn more about the reason for the change and how it may affect you at the 2022-23 Tuition Changes page. 


Undergraduate Costs

At St. Cloud State, we believe in your ability to unlock the unique potential of all students. That’s why we are offering the Be A Husky Award to all admitted, undergraduate out-of-state, North Dakota, and South Dakota Huskies. This award automatically reduces tuition costs for students coming to St. Cloud State from other states.

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.

The chart below shows estimated Fall 2022, Spring 2023, and Summer 2023 costs based on 12-18 credits per semester for a student living on campus with a Husky Anytime Meal Plan
