The American College of Norway is the only UND program where freshman who have completed 15 university-level credits can study abroad. Host institutions may have additional GPA, class standing, and/or language requirements.
You will typically hear within two to three weeks after the program deadline if you have been accepted. Initial approval is based on UND requirements. Final acceptance to your program is at the discretion of the host institution and not UND. You will receive two acceptance letters – one from UND by email and one from your program.
Your letter will contain additional documents for you to complete.
