Minnesota has ongoing reciprocity agreements with Wisconsin, North Dakota, South Dakota, and the Canadian province of Manitoba. The agreements reduce non-resident tuition prices and eliminate non-resident admissions barriers for residents of each state who attend a public institution in the other state.

The programs with Wisconsin, North Dakota, and South Dakota cover virtually all students, including full-time, part-time, undergraduate, graduate, and professional (some professional programs are excluded).
