Graduate-Level Credit Tuition & Fees and Registration Process:
UMN and Non-Degree-Seeking Students

Tuition and fees and the registration process for graduate-level credits depends on whether you are a University of Minnesota degree-seeking/certificate student or a non-degree-seeking (not matriculated in a UMN program) participant who wishes to take the institute for credit.

Click on the appropriate tab below for detailed information.

University of Minnesota (UM) Degree-Seeking or Certificate Students

Cost: Initial CARLA Registration ($150–$300) + University Tuition and Fees

University of Minnesota students who wish to register for graduate-level credits and are currently enrolled in a degree-seeking program or certificate program at the University of Minnesota can receive a discount on their initial CARLA cost (varies between $150–$300). This payment to CARLA covers the cost of materials and, in some institutes, extras such as refreshments and/or guest presenters. Tuition/fees for credit registration are set by the University and charged according to the student’s status. Information about costs for University tuition and fees can be found on OneStop. Note: Students who receive the initial discount must also register for graduate-level credit and pay UM tuition or they will be billed the balance of the non-credit cost of the course.

Process: Registration for U of MN students wishing to take a CARLA summer institute for credit requires a three-step process:

  1. UM student pays an initial non-credit CARLA registration cost (varies between $150–$300) through CARLA’s registration system. A UM student ID# is required to register.
  2. CARLA secures the special permission required for credit registration. CARLA will alert UM students when they are cleared to register for credit through MyU. (Note: We will begin the process of clearing UM students for registration beginning May 3. Our goal thereafter will be to clear registration by the Thursday after a student registers through CARLA. Rest assured that your place in the credit class will be guaranteed.)
  3. UM student registers for graduate-level credit online through MyU.

    Note: Students who have not registered for consecutive terms may be deactivated from the UM registration system and cannot register until they reactivate their student status on the Graduate School readmissions website.

After registration: The University of Minnesota Registrar will bill the cost of University tuition and fees, which is based on the student's status at the University. Those registrants who receive the student discount, but do not register for credit by the time the institute begins, will be billed for the balance of the registration cost.

 

Problems? Students who have problems with credit registration after the initial registration through CARLA can contact Karin Larson (larso205@umn.edu) with their student ID# and the name of the summer institute(s) for which they need to register.

Non-Degree-Seeking Students

Eligibility: Participants can take graduate courses as a non-degree student at the University if they have a bachelor's or another postsecondary degree and are not admitted to, or currently active in, a University of Minnesota degree program.

Cost: Initial CARLA Registration (varies between $350-$600) + University Tuition and Fees ($732 per credit, plus approximately $100 in registration fees for two credits.)

Any teacher who wishes to register for graduate-level credit, but is not a University of Minnesota degree/certificate student must pay the regular CARLA registration costs in addition to University tuition and fees. See a chart of tuition and fees for non-degree-seeking students. (The institutes are offered at the graduate level for graduate with a bachelor's or another postsecondary degree who is not admitted to, or currently active in, a University of Minnesota degree program

Process: Registration for non-degree-seeking students wishing to take a CARLA summer institute for credit requires a three-step process:

  1. Student pays the initial CARLA registration cost (varies between $350–$550 + $50 late fee if registering after June 4) through CARLA’s registration system.
  2. Student completes a non-degree-seeking credit registration request form which will be sent out by CARLA before the institute starts. Once the registration form has been processed, an email confirmation will be sent to the student by the Office of the Registrar. The email will include directions on how to set up a University of Minnesota email account and pay the bill for credit tuition/fees.
  3. Student pays the cost of University tuition and fees. See the OneStop website for information about payment process and dates.

Note! Non-degree-seeking students who are accepted to the following UMN certificate programs are eligible for a discount on their initial registration cost.
