Lake Region State College

12 semester hours and other fees dropped

below 16 semester hours).

Class Substitutions -

After the 8.99%

period of the term, classes of the same or

fewer credits may be substituted for the

dropped class without incurring additional

charges, except, in certain instances, special

course fees associated with the added class

or classes.

Substituting a dropped class with an added

class is allowed only within the same

location and session at the same institution.

If a student substitutes a class from outside

the original session, the student will be

responsible to pay for both classes.

Residence Requirement -

State law

defines residence as “the place where one

remains when not called elsewhere for labor

or other special or temporary purpose and

to which he returns in seasons of repose.”

The law further states an adult must make

their permanent home in North Dakota

for 12 consecutive months to meet time

requirements for residency. Since attendance

at an institution of higher education is

normally considered a “special or temporary

purpose,” students entering Lake Region

State College from other states will not

acquire North Dakota residency simply by

attendance at the college.

Reciprocity for Minnesota Residents -

Action taken by Minnesota and North Dakota

legislatures allows residents of Minnesota to

attend state supported institutions of higher

education in North Dakota at special rates.

Approval by the authorized agency of the

student’s home state is required. Minnesota

residents may obtain the Application

for Reciprocity by contacting the Higher

Education Coordinating Board. Application

should be made at least six weeks prior to

the beginning of the semester a student

wishes to enroll.
