Disclaimer: I try to be as accurate as possible. If there is any inconsistency between the answers to the FAQs and any official policy of the university, the latter must be followed. Note that some of my answers reflect my personal opinions, which do not represent the Department of Economics, the School of Public Affairs (SOPA), St. Cloud State University (SCSU) and the Minnesota State Universities and Colleges (MnSCU).
