Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

it has been a great experience for me to learn how to live away from home and i've never had to share a room with anyone. i really feel i learned a lot about myself and my decision making skills improved.
Anthony from Champlin, MN
The cost for the schooling is very reasonable. Especially for how good of schooling you are getting. The cost of room and board is a little expensive, but one of the dorms are really nice and one in the making.
William from Fairmont, MN
The great thing about coming to Mankato is that many students get a lot of financial aid. So turn in your FAFSA in early so you get all the money possible. Even though all together it is around 16,000 or so, you pay so much less, it even can even compare to going to a community college near home, depending how well you did in high school and how many scholarships you have. This is really good because you get a good experience moving away from home to grow up for not that much money.
Princess from St. Paul, MN
Many resources available to you, with the money you give the school. You receive more resources and help then what you paid for.
Kelly from Mankato, MN
The school of mankato is small, but Mankato as a city is very large. There are so many places to explore on and off campus, the academics are good, and it is very cheap.
Libbie from Stillwater, MN
The cost for schooling at Mankato is very reasonable. Also, there are opportunities for students who it might be hard to afford to go to Mankato. Students are eligible for financial aid and scholarships to help pay for their college expenses.
