Take Care of Financial Aid

If you’re transferring and you’ve already completed the 2017-18 FAFSA at another school, you’ll need to:
- Cancel any unprocessed aid from your current school.
- Add UND’s school code to your 2017-18 FAFSA so it can be forwarded to UND for processing.
UND’s FAFSA school code is 003005. Funding is not guaranteed; please apply early.
If you have any questions, refer to the Applying for Aid website or contact UND One-Stop Student Services at 701.777.1234.
Scholarships & Waivers
You may be eligible for scholarships and tuition waivers that require separate application processes, including through our online database, Scholarship Central, which is home to more than 800 scholarship opportunities.
Note: You may accept non-UND scholarships without affecting your UND scholarships. (If you have a UND athletic scholarship, please contact the Athletic Department to determine if you can accept a non-UND scholarship.)
Apply for Housing
If you’re a freshman, you’re required to live on campus for your first, full academic year or receive an approved exemption. Visit Housing to learn more about the campus living requirement and to research all on-campus housing options.
After you’ve claimed your account, visit Housing to find instructions for completing the online residence hall application in Campus Connection, UND’s student account system.
A $60 non-refundable fee is due when you submit your application.
Apply early! Your priority for room assignment is based on the date you submit your application.
Visit Housing to learn about affordable and conveniently located UND apartments, University Place and residence hall options for transfer students.
Note: The apartment application is not online and is separate from the residence hall application process described above.
Confirm Your Enrollment
To confirm your enrollment for Spring 2018, you must pay a $200 non-refundable deposit by the December 1 priority deadline. The deposit is a down payment applied to tuition, fees or other charges on your UND bill.
You’ll need to pay the full deposit before you’ll be eligible to take the next steps toward being a UND student, including:
- Signing up for Orientation
- Registering for classes
- Receiving your housing room assignment
So it’s very important to confirm your enrollment as soon as possible!
- Required of all new freshmen and transfer students who plan to enroll in classes for Spring 2018.
- Priority deadline is December 1.
- The $200 deposit is a down payment applied to future charges you'll incur on your UND bill (tuition, fees, etc.). It's not an additional charge.
- Non-refundable, but may be applied to future terms if you're unable to enroll for Spring 2018. Call 1.800.CALL.UND for details.
- If you're unable to pay the full amount at one time, you may pay in installments through the December 1 deadline.
After you've claimed your account, you can make your online payment through Campus Connection via e-check from a U.S. bank (free service) or credit card (2.75% convenience fee). It may take up to 2 business days for the deposit to be processed.
- Refer to the How to Pay Your Enrollment Confirmation Deposit document for step-by-step instructions on paying your deposit in Campus Connection. You must claim your account before you can pay your deposit (see above).
- See Payment Options for alternative payment methods, including mailing a check (note Enrollment Confirmation Deposit in the memo) or FlyWire for international payments.
Note: If you're unable to pay the $200 deposit due to financial hardship, please contact the UND Office of Admissions at 1.800.CALL.UND or 701.777.3000.
After Paying Your Deposit

Documentation needs to be signed / stamped by a licensed health care provider. High school records will also be accepted.
Submit Your Documentation
