Graduate Tuition and Related Costs

The SD Mines Tuition Fees and Fees Schedule provides information for both undergraduate and graduate students - with both numbers and detailed fee descriptions.

You might also want to review the ECOA (Estimated Cost of Attendance) budgets prepared and used by our Financial Aid Office.  They take cost estimates a step further.  The ECOA Budgets for Full Time Graduate Students include tuition/fees, room/board, books/supplies, tablet PC rental and other miscellaneous costs for personal and travel expenses. 

Students from selected states in the Western USA may be eligible to pay a resident tuition fee under the Western Regional Graduate Program, depending on the degree program chosen.  Students from Minnesota should investigate the Minnesota Reciprocity program.
