Residency and Fees
University and Graduate Student Fees
Refer to the Estimated Expenses--Fee Schedules, which contains both graduate and undergraduate student fees. Current tuition and fee schedules also are available from the MSU Business Office. For summer fees, refer to the MSU Summer Session Bulletin. Late fees are assessed for registration after regular registration days. All fees are subject to change at any time by action of the Board of Regents of Higher Education.
Residency Requirements for Fee Purposes
Residency for fee purposes is determined by the regulations of the Board of Regents. The Graduate School reviews the residency status of each newly accepted graduate student and follows the general guidelines outlined by the Office of the Registrar's Residency Policy. If a student is unemancipated and normally resides with a parent who is a Montana resident, The Graduate School will apply resident status.
