UND School of Law offers two Joint Degree Programs with the UND College of Business and Public Administration. Students earn either their MPA or MBA alongside their J.D. Students pay both Law tuition on the Law credits and Graduate tuition on the Graduate credits. Depending upon the combination and number of credits between the two programs, the tuition could be more or less when compared to being in only one of the programs full time. In most cases the student will be paying more tuition.

Students also pay the Law program fee and the Business program fee, based on the number of credits they are taking of each program. The Law fee is $53.33 per credit, capped at $1,600 per academic year; the Business fee is $12.50 per credit, capped at $300 per academic year.

Mandatory fees (ConnectND, NDSA, technology, and student fees) for both programs are per credit and cap at 12 credits per program/degree. Therefore, a student enrolled in the Joint Degree program will always pay more in fees than a student in only one degree program. Since these students are in two careers and receiving two degrees, the fees cap at 12 credits for each program, not 12 credits total.

A collaborative student is one who is earning their degree from UND and chooses to enroll in courses at another North Dakota University System (NDUS) institution within the same term. The institution from which the student is earning a degree is considered the "home institution." The institution(s) that supplies courses for a degree is considered the "provider institution(s)."

The student pays tuition/fees at their Home Institution for the Collaborative Courses. The cost information is received from the Provider Institution. This additional amount will be included on the student's account balance at UND. Collaborative courses are not subject to the UND tuition cap.
