Freshmen Admissions

UND provides one of the best values of any college in the country.

Our combined tuition, fees and room/meal plans cost about $3,000 less per year than the national average for four-year doctoral universities. Plus, each year 75% of our undergrad students share more than $108 million in financial aid, including scholarships and waivers. On average, each of our students receives $12,900 annually in financial assistance.
