The University’s aviation program is unique — and so are the education expenses that go with it. Unlike most other undergraduates, your costs aren’t limited to tuition, fees, room and meal plan costs. You need to consider other expenses, such as instructor and simulator fees and aircraft rental costs.
Estimated Cost of Attendance
You can use several resources to estimate the cost of participating in the aviation program.
- Individual Flight Course Costs shows the costs of your individual flight courses.
- Projected Program Costs can help you estimate the costs of participating in the aviation program.
To see your estimated cost of attendance in CampusConnection, visit View My Financial Aid > Aid Year > Financial Aid Summary.
Keep in mind that flight costs will be added to your estimated cost of attendance only if you’re a declared aviation major and register for the courses which are required for your degree.
Financial Aid Notification
The final cost for fall semester aviation coursework isn’t typically determined until June, which is after you’ve registered for fall courses.
When those costs are determined, we will review your aid and potentially make adjustments to it. In addition, if you’re enrolled in Aviation 102: Private Pilot, we’ll notify you by email after we’ve reviewed your financial aid.
If you’ve already been awarded the maximum amount of aid, or if the aid you’ve been offered isn’t sufficient to cover your costs, you’ll need to find additional sources of funding, such as a private education loan or Federal Direct Parent Loan. If you are a current student, check out Scholarship Central, UND's scholarship database, for aviation scholarships.
Additional loans for flight costs are processed on a semester-by-semester basis because flight costs only become known after you’ve registered for courses each semester.
