We have many options available for transfer students to explore how their credentials will transfer to UND.
We recommend that students begin by first exploring if there is a 2+2 agreement with your current institution. If there is, you will see specific courses that transfer seamlessly within a plan to help transfer students complete their four-year degree in four years! Students can work with an advisor at their current institution on this plan.
If you're planning on a degree in any of our engineering programs, check our engineering agreements. Due to the specificity of courses needed to complete these programs, these agreements are much more intricate than our typical 2+2 plans. Again, you may consult with advisors at your current institution as these are formal agreements.
If you do not see a 2+2 or engineering agreement, please explore our program guides. These are intended to help students plan what they need to complete at their current institution that will help them to be successful in their program of choice.
In addition to the program-specific guides we also provide waivers for our essential studies (general education) program for students who have completed particular degrees. Those who have complete an associate of science or associate of arts degree at a US regionally or CHEA accredited institution will have their breadth of knowledge requirements waived.
Additionally, students with an AA or AS from schools with articulation agreements and students from NDUS institutions that are part of the General Education Transfer Agreement may also have their special emphasis requirements waived.
Note: This waiver does NOT apply toward associate of applied science degrees.
Students who have completed a four-year baccalaureate degree from a U.S. regionally or CHEA accredited institution will have all essential studies requirements waived.
Finally, if there is not a current program guide, you may consult our course equivalency database. This will help you compare courses you have completed with requirements for essential studies (general education) and your program.
Receive College Credit for Military Training
Through the General Education Requirement Transfer Agreement (GERTA), current members of the U.S. Armed Forces and its veterans can now receive credit for military training. More than 130 approved military courses have been mapped to UND’s general education categories such as arts and humanities, communications, mathematics, science, social sciences, and technology and will count toward Essential Studies requirements
Essential Studies (general education) equivalencies and major requirements are subject to change. An official evaluation of your transfer credit will be done upon admission to the University of North Dakota. Transfer credits will be evaluated and applied according to the current academic catalog and the approved Essential Studies list at the first semester of enrollment at UND.
