Thirty colleges and universities under the Minnesota State System are waiving off application fee for the full month of October.

The decision to waive off the application fee is part of the “College Knowledge Month”, a statewide effort to provide students exploring their higher education options.

The initiative will waive a $20 application fee for new undergraduate students. If prompted for a promo code, applicants can use “CKM2019.”

“The colleges and universities of Minnesota State offer a transformational education, and are the most affordable and accessible options in the state,” said Devinder Malhotra, chancellor of Minnesota State.

“I encourage everyone who is considering higher education to take advantage of College Knowledge Month to fully explore the many opportunities available in Minnesota and take the first steps towards a brighter future for themselves and for their families.”

Last week, Seventeen colleges in Indiana announced to waive off application fees round the year to encourage more high school students to apply for college.
