U Of M Reviews Out-Of-Staters

Wednesday, January 2nd, 2013 at 4:08 pm

The University of Minnesota has been a hot-bed for non-resident students over the past years. The U dropped it’s non-resident tuition back in 2009 to attract those out-of staters, but now the University is reviewing plans to bring it back.

Currently Minnesota is the cheapest school in the entire Big Ten Conference for such students, however for natives and nearby statesman it’s the 4th expensive.

The percentage of non-resident students at the University has dramatically rose from only 8% back in 2007, to 17% in the modern day. The number of resident students dipped only slighlty, as well as neighboring statesman.

The main topic the U will be reviewing is how sensitive non-resident students are to prices. Decisions will be made after more research.
