Tuition & Fees
At the University of North Dakota, you'll find one of the best education values in the Midwest.
In fact, a recent study found that UND's tuition and fees average 11.4% less than its counterparts in an 11-state region. Plus, UND offers millions of dollars in scholarships and financial aid packages to help you finance your education.
Your tuition rate and fees are based upon where you live and the number of credits you take. Based on 2012-13 costs, the tuition map provides you with a general estimate of your expenses for a 9-month academic year (excludes summer semester).
The tuition map is based on the 2012-2013 flat rate for full-time students (12-20 credits/semester). Please note that all charges are subject to change and do not include: personal expenses, flight/aviation expenses, or various course fees.
At UND, tuition and most fees are capped at 12 on-campus credits per fall and spring semesters, or at 9 on-campus credits per summer semester. This means that even if you take additional on-campus courses beyond the tuition cap, you will pay the same flat rate for tuition.
Now, that's value!
If you are a part-time student enrolled in fewer than 12 credits and/or take online courses, you will pay undergraduate tuition and fees on a per-credit basis .

If you are an active duty U.S. military member, a veteran, or a spouse, you may qualify for a tuition-waiver program that is equivalent to the tuition charged to ND residents, regardless of your actual residency status.
In addition, if you are a dependent of an active duty U.S. military member or a ND National Guard member, you may qualify for the in-state tuition rate.
UND-contracted ROTC cadets also pay the in-state tuition rates.

If you are a non-resident and a spouse or dependent of a graduate from any North Dakota University System institution , you are eligible for a reduced tuition rate charged at 150% of the current ND resident tuition rate.
If you are a dependent of a UND benefited employee, you will pay 50% of the in-state tuition rate.
Tuition for many online and distance education courses is charged at the ND resident 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.
