Eligibility

Any student who is enrolled in an eligible degree program and meets residency requirements at a public university in Wisconsin may attend a Minnesota public institution on a space available basis and pay the established reciprocity fee for course work that is located in Minnesota under this program.

Any student who is enrolled in an eligible program and meets residency requirements at a public institution in Minnesota may attend a Wisconsin public institution on a space available basis and pay the established reciprocity fee for course work that is located in Wisconsin.

Professional students enrolling in a Doctor of Medicine, Doctor of Dental Sciences, or Doctor of Veterinary Medicine program in the public institutions of either state are ineligible for reciprocity tuition.

Students who are admitted as special student status (course takers) at UWGB but regularly attend another WI public institution during the school year, should ensure they identify UWGB on their application for reciprocity in order for the tuition rate to be assessed for enrollment. A student who is at UWGB for the summer can be assessed the reciprocity tuition rate once approved via the appropriate state agency application.
