All tuition and fees costs are subject to change.  Mayville State's academic year consists of two semesters.  At Mayville State University, 12+ semester credits enrolled per semester are the same price for on-campus classes, based on a student's residency for tuition purposes. Online Mayville State courses, independent study courses, prior learning assessments, collaborative courses from other NDUS campuses, and courses with delivery modes other than on-campus classes are charged in addition to the full-time tuition and fees cost for 12+ on-campus classes.

All online and distance classes are charged separately at the online/distance tuition and fee rate per credit (regardless of state of residency).  The 12+ semester credit tuition cap does not apply, and online/distance students enrolled in 12 or more semester credits will pay for each semester credit enrolled.

Application Fee: All students are subject to a one-time $35 application fee to Mayville State University. Graduate students may be subject up to a $40 program application fee.

Student Health Fee: Up to $50 fee per term will be assessed to all degree seeking students.

The mandatory student health fee, that was put forward from Student Senate in response to the student body’s request and was recognized and passed by the Mayville State President’s Cabinet, was put into place in recognition that multiple students did not feel that they were being given enough support through health services. With this fee, new resources were provided to both on and off-campus students.

On Campus Students:

  • This fee is to help students have access to Sanford Health onsite, including acute care, health promotion, STD and other lab testing on campus, along with more private access to a nurse for medical advice. Hours have been enhanced to 40+ per week.
  • Another change was for a full-time licensed counselor for student’s mental health needs. Students may visit in person or virtually during the week to satisfy any mental health needs they have, with some limited options for appointments outside of regular business hours.

Off Campus Students:

  • This fee is to help students have access to telehealth options via Sanford through our Campus Health Services, free consultations and referrals to the student’s local providers and health promotion opportunities. Student Health Services had not been an option in the past for online students.
  • Our on-campus counselor will be also available to off campus students to communicate with for any of their mental health care needs and provide tele-counseling options by a licensed mental health provider over Zoom, as well as free consultations and referrals.
