Best Value College
UND's School of Graduate Studies is one of the best values in the nation, offering lower tuition and fees than similar Midwest four-year doctoral universities. For an affordable tuition price, our students are learning from top experts and leading research.
The work you do at UND will be worth it — in more ways than one. Depending on your field, your paycheck could jump by $900/month with a master's degree or more than $2,200/month with a doctoral degree. Graduate degrees can also open new career opportunities and provide personal growth.
