Cost & Aid
Talking about the costs of college is a tough topic to tackle but it's a conversation worth having — with yourself, your family and with us.
Excellence in education should be within everyone's reach.
We understand affordability is going to be a part of your decision making process. Think of your UND education as an investment of time, effort, energy and money. In return, you gain the knowledge and skills to become a true leader in action.
OK, but how much does UND cost?
The cost of attending UND may not be as much as you think. There are a number of factors that can adjust your costs. You'll need to take the following into consideration:
- Where you live
- The type of degree you seek (including if the program is delivered on-campus or online)
- Your current financial situation
- Your academic record
- If you have military, veteran or dependent status
If you're comparing our costs to other schools, keep in mind that most of UND's program and course fees are rolled into the tuition rates so you know your costs upfront. In addition, UND's tuition is capped at full-time rates so on-campus students can take additional credits without paying more.
Other schools may present costs a little differently so make sure you're comparing apples to apples.
Tuition and fees for UND are:
What kind of help is available?
There are several options that can help bring down your costs, including:
- Scholarships (merit-based awards that don't have to be repaid)
- Grants (need-based awards that don't have to be repaid)
- Loans (that do have to be repaid)
How much am I expected to borrow?
Don't make the mistake of not filing a FAFSA because you don't think you'll qualify for aid. Everyone is eligible for certain types of loans. There is no explicit income cutoff for need-based aid, such as subsidized student loans.
Are the costs worth it?
You'll receive a top-rated education at UND, sure, but the return is so much more. You'll forge lifelong friendships, build self confidence, gain incredible experience and join a network of UND alumni connected around the world.
How will I pay it back?
Student loan debt doesn't need to last forever and it becomes more manageable with successful employment.
