The week of October 23rd 2017 is a big one for folks looking to apply for colleges and universities here in Minnesota. Colleges and Universities of Minnesota State are waiting the application fees. The goal is to offset some of the stresses with fees. It’s a great way for traditional and non-traditional students to get involved in applying for school.
