Affordable Education

Affordable, high-quality education

By attending MCTC for one academic year, you could save more than $20,000. Compare MCTC's tuition with other nearby schools––and see for yourself.

Tuition at Minnesota State Colleges and Universities is lower than tuition at most other colleges, universities and trade schools because the state of Minnesota pays a portion of the cost of your education if you are a state resident. For every dollar you pay in tuition, the state of Minnesota pays $1.02 to support your education. The college cost comparison chart includes tuition and fees information for public and private colleges and universities throughout Minnesota.

Financial aid and scholarships

Nearly 75 percent of MCTC’s students receive some form of financial aid to help cover school expenses. There are several types of financial aid available at MCTC, including grants, scholarships, loans and work study opportunities. The MCTC Foundation is dedicated to providing financial support to MCTC students in need through special initiatives and by providing scholarships and other types of assistance.
