Out-of State Tuition
Wisconsin has reciprocity agreements with Minnesota and upper Michigan.  Minnesota and upper Michigan residents will pay the same fees as Wisconsin residents.

A limited number of students from other states will be accepted at the same fees as a Wisconsin resident.  Out-of-state students are requested to contact the School of Applied Technology Office for further information concerning enrollment and fees.

An estimated book cost for the two‑year program is $750.

The John Deere F.O.S. and F.M.O. series books are used where applicable.  Dealers are encouraged to assist students by allowing students to purchase these books through the dealership.

In addition to the above expenses, students are required to provide or purchase their own set of tools for the first internship at the dealership.  These tools can be purchased at a substantial discount from vendors (Snap‑on, Matco, Mac, Craftsman, O.T.C., Proto) at our  annual tool show which is held early in the first semester.  Comparable tool sets and boxes will be available at the tool show.  Estimated cost of the tools with box is between $2,500 and $3,000.  A suggested tool list is included in this brochure.  TOOLS FOR TECHS PROGRAM is available from the sponsoring John Deere dealer also.
