I'm Aimee Thostenson and as the Director of International Student Recruitment, I'm your first point of contact for all questions about studying here. I know that deciding to study in the USA can seem very complicated, so I'm here to make the process easier and clarify any doubts you may have. The University of Minnesota offers an exceptional academic experience in a vibrant metropolitan area, full of many opportunities for undergraduate research and activities outside the classroom. It's my privilege to work with students from Canada and we are proud to offer in-state tuition to Manitoba residents due to our reciprocity agreement. Please reach out if you have any questions!
