The University of Minnesota, Crookston offers a single rate of tuition and fees to all students. Online students are not charged non-resident tuition and fees. This results in significant savings for a University of Minnesota diploma regardless of where you reside. Financial aid may be available for degree seeking students who qualify.
Students apply for financial aid by completing the FAFSA. Please add the University of Minnesota, Crookston’s school code: 004069. Consideration for financial aid cannot be guaranteed unless your FAFSA and any additional supporting documents are submitted to the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships at least two weeks prior to the start of the semester. Once the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships receives your FAFSA and additional requested documents, financial aid will be awarded. Students are encouraged to check their UMC email account and log in to MY FA STATUS for updates and additional instruction.
If you are expecting a refund for excess financial aid, we encourage you to sign up for direct deposit.
Please note that online students are packaged with the same criteria as onsite students with the exception of work-study, which is not awarded to our online students. It is important to note that with few exceptions (see below), all institutional awards do require full-time (12 credits) enrollment. Federal and State Grant programs are pro-rated based on the number of credits for which a student is enrolled. Students must be enrolled at least half-time (6 credits) in order to receive loan funds.
It is important to remember that all students are packaged assuming full-time enrollment (12-15 credits). If you are taking fewer credits, you will be repackaged with the correct awards based on actual enrollment after the census date (the last day to drop or add a class).
Please note that the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships is responsible for ensuring compliance of the Satisfactory Academic Progress Policy which requires we review transfer credit for maximum time frame. Federal regulations allow financial aid up to 150% of credits required to graduate (180 credits) from the University. For this reason, we encourage transfer students or students with prior degrees to visit with the Office of Financial Aid & Scholarships about the policy.
More information for online students may be found at the Center for Adult Learning.
