Student Life


The cost (premium) per month is $379.58.

Your account will be charged $121.38 at the beginning of each semester. This fee is not prorated.

The remaining $359.35 monthly balance will be paid as follows: The University share (of the $359.35 balance) is equal to twice your appointment percentage. For example, if you have a 50% appointment, the University will pay the entire $359.35. Or, if you have a 25% appointment, the University will only pay half (that is 50% of $359.35, or $179.68 per month) and you pay the rest, which is billed once at the beginning of the semester to your student account. Percentages are based on how many hours are worked per semester.

Twin Cities

The Minneapolis and St. Paul area is the cultural and industrial center of the upper Midwest, with a population of about 2.3 million. Beautiful lakes, rivers, and city and state parks combined with the cold winter, cool spring, warm summer, and colorful autumn provide excellent opportunities for a variety of outdoor activities, including biking, camping, swimming, fishing, and skiing.
