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
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.
