Registration, Fees, Billing, and Tuition for:

Twin Cities Campus

Duluth Campus

Taking Classes at Other Campuses

An agreement exists among the campuses of the University of Minnesota (Duluth, Twin Cities, Rochester, Morris, Crookston) that allows a degree-seeking student at one campus to attend another campus as a multi-institutional student for one term during an academic year without losing their status at the home campus.

To register as a multi-institutional student, you will need to complete the Application for Attending Another U of M Campus as a Multi-Institutional Student. Once you have completed this form, please bring to the IBS Program Office. Once processed/approved, you will be able to register for the classes you wish to take at the other U of M campus.

If you are registered for classes at a host campus only, that campus will bill you directly for your tuition and fees. Any financial aid you receive at your home campus will be sent to you in the form of a surplus check which should then be used to pay your bill at your host campus.

If you are registered for classes at both your home and a host campus during the same term, you will receive a bill from each campus for tuition and fees. If you receive financial aid, it will be based on the combined credits that you are registered for at both campuses.* However, your aid will be disbursed and applied to your bill at your home campus ONLY; it will NOT apply directly to your bill at your host campus. You will be responsible for paying that bill separately. If you receive a financial aid surplus check, those funds can be used to pay your bill at your host campus.

Courses appear on your transcript under the header of your home campus for that term. However, if you want to look up grades using 'view my grades', you will need to go into each specific campus' one stop/self-service page to do so.

    GRAD 999

    GRAD 999 is a zero-credit, zero-tuition registration option intended for graduate students who have completed all coursework and (if applicable) thesis credit requirements, and who must maintain registration to meet the registration requirement. GRAD 999 cannot be used to meet any other requirements of the University or external agencies. The student must also have his or her own health insurance because payment of the Student Services Fee does not render the students eligible to buy University-sponsored health insurance.
