The above figures are estimates only. Actual expenses will vary per student depending on actual credit hours, discipline fees, room/board options, etc.

#DIRECT COSTS include tuition/fees, books/supplies (if using First Access or purchased from the Rocker Shop), tablet PC, room and board (for students living in campus housing), are payable to South Dakota Mines.

##INDIRECT COSTS include transportation and personal allowances that are not payable to South Dakota Mines. These are potential expenses the student might have throughout the school year that are not related to what they will owe South Dakota Mines.  Students and families interested in the potential direct cost (what could be owed to the university for the school year) for attending South Dakota Mines should take the above totals and subtract the transportation and personal expense amounts.

* Beginning with fall 2018, new or new transfer students in the following tuition categories are also eligible for the SD resident tuition rate: Nebraska Advantage and Colorado Excellence. 
^ Beginning with fall 2019, new or new transfer students from Colorado, Iowa, Nebraska, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming are eligible for SD Resident tuition rate (there is no provision to "grandfather" any students enrolled prior to fall 2019 from these states into the SD Resident tuition rate).  Students from states other than South Dakota and those listed above with at least one parent or legal guardian who are graduates of South Dakota Mines are also eligible for SD Resident tuition rate; this is commonly referred to as the Hardrocker Heritage Award.

** Final Minnesota Reciprocity rates are generally determined late summer.

*** WUE: Western Undergraduate Exchange Program - includes Alaska, Arizona, California, Colorado, Hawaii, Idaho, Montana, Nevada, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Utah, Washington, Wyoming, and the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands. New freshmen and transfer students beginning fall 2016 are eligible for this program.

The above estimate for fees reflects those fees that are both mandatory and common for the majority of students.  Your actual charges will likely be different than stated above based upon the actual number of credit hours and courses you are enrolled in.
