Net Price Calculator Tool (For Future Freshmen Use)

*UMD has reciprocity agreements with North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Manitoba. If you are a resident of any of these states or of this province, you may qualify for reciprocity tuition rates, which are comparable to resident rates. For more specific information, contact the UMD Office of Admissions or the Board of Higher Education in your state or province.

Because UMD is a state institution, Minnesota residents pay lower tuition rates than do nonresidents. To qualify for resident status, students must reside in Minnesota for at least one calendar year before the first day of class attendance, or have graduated from a Minnesota high school..

Check Your Financial Aid Status

Admitted students can check on their financial aid status, providing they have submitted a complete FAFSA. (Typically mid to late March)

Instructions for Account Initiation:
Step One: Go to the Student Internet Account Initiation Page

Step Two: Enter your social security number, your student ID number (listed on your confirmation letter), and your birth date. Next, read the password requirements carefully and choose an appropriate password. After all information is entered, click on “Submit Form.”

Step Three: If all of the information is entered correctly, you will see the “Internet Login Successful” screen. Behind this screen, you will find your Internet ID (a.k.a. X.500 Username) and email address.
Write down your Internet ID and remember your password

If you need assistance initiating your e-mail account, call the UMD ITSS HelpDesk (Information Technology Systems and Services) at 218/726-8847 or email them at The HelpDesk has some weekend and evening hours during the academic year.

Once you have initiated your e-mail account with the University, view the requirements to complete your financial aid application verification:

                Go to
Click on Check Your Financial Aid Status
Log in with your UMD-assigned Internet ID (X.500 user name)
