Tuition & Fees
Be richer when you graduate!
How? UND's combined tuition, fees and room / meal plans cost $4,000 less per year than the national average for 4-year public universities. That's money in your pocket!
Undergraduate tuition rates and fees are based on your residency and the number of credits you take. The tuition map gives you a general cost estimate for the 2015-16 academic year (excludes summer semester).
Tuition for Full & Part-Time Students
Full-Time Students (Tuition Cap)
For full-time students, UND caps tuition and most fees at the following rates:
- 12 on-campus credits each fall and spring semester
- 9 on-campus credits for the summer semester
That means even if you take up to 20 on-campus credits, you pay the same flat rate for tuition (as estimated on the tuition map).
Part-Time & Online Students
If you're a part-time student enrolled in fewer than 12 credits and/or take online courses, you'll pay undergraduate tuition and fees on a per-credit basis.
Reduced Tuition Options
If you meet certain conditions, you may qualify for reduced tuition regardless of your actual residency status.
Military & Veterans
The following qualify for a tuition-waiver program that's equivalent to the ND tuition rate:
- Full-time, active duty military service members and their dependents (spouse/child)
- Veterans and their dependents (spouse/child)
- ND National Guard members and their dependents (spouse/child)
- Members of the armed forces reserve component stationed in ND and their dependents (spouse/child)
- UND-contracted ROTC cadets
For eligibility information, view the UND Military Tuition website.
If you're a non-resident and a dependent (spouse/child) of a graduate from any ND University System (NDUS) institution, you'll pay 150% of the ND tuition rate.
If you're a dependent of a benefited UND employee, you'll pay 50% of the ND tuition rate.
Tuition for many online and distance education courses is charged at the ND tuition rate per credit, regardless of the total credits in which you are enrolled or your actual residency status.
If you live out of state, taking online courses can translate into big savings for you, compared to paying the non-resident tuition rate!
Some exceptions may apply, including tuition for online undergraduate engineering courses, which is based on your residency status.
Refer to UND Online & Distance Education for more information.
Room & Meal Plan Costs
If you're a freshman, you're required to live in the UND residence halls during your first year.
If you live in the UND residence halls, you're required to purchase a meal plan.
The tuition map estimates are based on the double room / unlimited access meal plan. For details and other housing options, refer to UND Housing & Dining.
