Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College is among the 30 colleges and seven universities of Minnesota State waiving application fees in October for all or part of College Knowledge Month, an annual statewide effort to encourage students to apply to college.
“We have participated in the application fee waiver during College Knowledge Month every October for several years,” said Susan Bumann, Admissions Representative at Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College. “It really does encourage future college students to start the application process sooner rather than later, which is a win-win opportunity for everyone.”
Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College has chosen to waive application fees for the entire month of October 2016. Most Minnesota State colleges and universities are waiving application fees from October 24-31, 2016. Application fees for qualified low-income students are always waived at all Minnesota State system colleges and universities.
“Minnesota State is proud of our commitment to offer all Minnesotans an extraordinary education that is an exceptional value,” said Steven Rosenstone, chancellor. “An important way we keep that commitment is by making it easy for high school students to take the first step on their higher education journey. That’s why we are waiving our application fees as part of College Knowledge Month.”
Applications for admission are available online at the college’s web site at, or by calling Susan Bumann in the Fond du Lac Tribal and Community College Admissions Office at 218-879-0808 or via email to sbumann*AT*


I chose FDLTCC because of its size and the curriculum. When I first came here in 2019, I was just looking for what I needed to volunteer, perhaps in a crisis shelter. I met with Don Jarvinen, and the rest is history.

My favorite thing about FDLTCC is the people. I’ve met fantastic students, faculty and staff who go above and beyond what I expected.

It is awesome here at the FDLTCC Education Program because it is like a family here, if you need help or are struggling with anything, you have quite a few people who will help you out.
