Coming in a number 22, UND offers more than 45 online degrees and graduate certificates, 200 online college credit courses and more than 600 online non-credit courses. Based on fall 2014 numbers, 1,705 undergraduate students and 1,362 graduate students were strictly online and distance students. More than 15% of on-campus undergraduates took at least one online course.
The online program rankings were determined by the following:
Scholarly strength of faculty
Online teaching methods
Range of degree programs offered
One of the factors in UND’s online success has been its tuition model for online and distance students. Regardless of residency, online students receive North Dakota resident tuition rates (a few exceptions apply).
“The fact that students from everywhere get to pay North Dakota’s low in-state tuition, and the wide variety of course offerings, as well as all of the online courses being taught by quality UND faculty is what makes UND’s online programs stand out,” said Heidi Flaten, UND assistant director of extended learning.
