We understand that paying for college can seem overwhelming. At UND, we make it a priority to help you finance your education.
In fact, 79% of UND's undergrad students share more than $88 million in financial aid, including scholarships, grants, employment, and loan programs.
Financial aid supplements the financial contributions that you and your family can make toward paying for your college education. Federal and state financial aid packages include scholarships, grants, employment, and loan programs, such as:
- North Dakota State Grant
- Federal Pell Grant
- Federal TEACH Grant
- Federal Supplemental Education Opportunity Grant
- Federal Work-Study Programs – up to 2,000 jobs available!
- Federal Perkins Loan
- Federal Direct Loans
- Federal Direct PLUS
The financial aid package you are eligible to receive is the difference between the amount the federal government expects you and your family to contribute to your education and the cost to attend UND. On average, UND students annually receive $3,000 or more in financial assistance.
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) is the only application UND requires to determine your eligibility for financial aid programs.
For an estimate of the financial aid you may qualify to receive at UND, complete:
1. Apply for admission and academic scholarships
To automatically be considered for UND academic scholarships, you should be admitted by:
- First-Year Students: March 1 for Fall 2014
- Transfer Students: April 15 for Fall 2014
After you've been admitted to UND, you will receive a User ID, Student ID number, and a University email address. All official correspondence from UND regarding your financial aid will be sent to this email address.
2. Apply for other scholarships and waivers
Other UND scholarship and tuition waiver programs require a separate application. Refer to Undergraduate Scholarships and Waivers for more information. Please note the deadline dates!
3. Apply for financial aid by April 15
Complete the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) by April 15 to ensure that it is processed by the North Dakota priority date. UND's school code is 003005.
Please note that FAFSA applications are available after January 1 of the year you will enter UND.
