Element Name 
Contiguous States 
Element Description 
Montana, South Dakota, Manitoba and Saskatchewan are states/provinces that border North Dakota. Because of this close relationship, students from those states/provinces are eligible for a reduced tuition rate, per SBHE Policy 805.1(3)(a).
In order to receive this residency coding and corresponding tuition rate, they must meet one of the following guidelines:
1. If the student’s only address on the application for admission is located in one of the qualifying state/provinces, code the student as Contiguous.
2. If the student has a mailing address not in one of the qualifying states because they are attending and residing at a college/university, but the student’s parent’s address is in one of the border state/province, the student should be coded as Contiguous.
a. For example, the student graduated from Vermillion (SD) High School, is attending the University of Nebraska-Omaha and would like to transfer to NDSU. His parents address is Vermillion, SD. Therefore the student should be coded as Contiguous.
