Military Admissions Process
UND is proud to serve those who serve our country by providing you with the education and support you deserve.
If you're an active duty military member, veteran or dependent, you must follow the admissions steps outlined below to ensure that any military tuition assistance or education benefits are processed properly.
Military Admissions Process
- Visit with your Educational Services Officer (ESO) or counselor to determine what benefits you are eligible to receive.

- Visit Veterans Online Application (VONAPP) to apply for your education benefits and get your Award Letter/Statement of Benefits (COE or NOBE) mailed to you.
- If you are a transfer student who used VA benefits at another school, you must complete the 22-1995: Request for Change of Program/Place of Training form and submit to the VA. Students using Chapter 35 should use form 22-5495.
- Send official transcripts, including Joint Service Transcripts, to UND Admissions.
