Minnesota Reciprocity 
Element Description 
This residency category includes students approved by the state of Minnesota to be charged the reduced tuition rate.

1. Undergraduate students who fall under the circumstances listed below (items a.i-iii) must apply for Minnesota reciprocity at the State of Minnesota’s website: http://www.getreadyforcollege.org/hesod/reciprocity/apply1.cfm.
a. Until a campus receives verification that an Undergraduate student is approved for reciprocity, the student should be coded as MHEC. Once the verification is received, the coding may be updated to Minnesota Reciprocity.
i. Student coming to your school as a transfer student – even if from another NDUS institution
ii. Student who graduated from a home school
iii. Student who earned a GED
2. Graduate students from Minnesota must apply to the State of Minnesota for reciprocity at the same website as above.
a. Until a campus receives verification that a Graduate student is approved for reciprocity, the student should be coded as Non-Resident. Once the verification is received, the coding may be updated to Minnesota Reciprocity.
3. Undergraduate students who attended your institution as Minnesota Reciprocity, but stopped out within the same academic year must reapply for reciprocity through the website. Until your campus receives verification that they are approved for reciprocity, the student should be coded as MHEC. Once the verification is received, the coding may be updated to Minnesota Reciprocity.
a. Note: this is more conservative than the description that is quoted in the MOU with the State of Minnesota. The MOU states that the student should reapply for reciprocity if “the student should not attend the institution for which he or she is approved for a 365-day period.” It is recommended that students who stop out for just one term be advised to reapply for Reciprocity and be coded as MHEC in the meantime.
4. Any undergraduate student who graduated from a Minnesota High School (public or private) and is attending an NDUS institution within one year of high school graduation (Summer Session, Fall Semester, Spring Semester) may be coded as a Minnesota Reciprocity. These students are submitted to and approved by Minnesota through the paperless application process as long as they HAVE NOT attended another institution of higher education since they graduated from high school.
a. In order to be considered approved by the State of Minnesota, the student must have:
i. A valid National ID in Campus Solutions (SSN, not all X’s) and;
ii. An appropriate graduation date from a Minnesota high school recorded on their application for admission in Campus Solutions.
5. A report of Collaborative students coded as Minnesota Reciprocity at the Home School will be included in the data file sent to the State of Minnesota at the end of every semester. This file will include the Provider campus(es) at which the student is enrolled. Minnesota State Higher Ed Office personnel agreed to extend the Home campus status to the provider campus(es). As a result, Collaborative students do not need to apply for Minnesota Reciprocity through the provider campus and can be coded as “Minnesota Reciprocity” when the collaborative application is processed.
