Veteran & Military Admissions
At the University of North Dakota, we are leaders in action. We meet adversity head-on, roll up our sleeves and get the job done. We lead not by telling, but by doing.
Nobody represents "leaders in action" more than our military personnel. For decades UND has worked with student veterans and is recognized as a leader in service. We're committed to providing the best educational experience and service to our military affiliated students.
UND's Veteran & Military Services is available to help veterans and military affiliated students maximize their college funding.

An Affordable Education
As an active duty military service member, veteran, North Dakota National Guard member, or spouse, you will be charged the North Dakota in-state tuition rate for all on-campus courses regardless of your actual residency status. If you enroll in an online program, you'll be billed the standard online tuition rate for that program. Online programs are not dependent on residency.
We're a partner with the U.S. Air Force, offering Air University Associate-to-Baccalaureate Cooperative (AU-ABC) degrees. Any active Airmen can maximize the credit you've earned through the Community College of the Air Force and apply it to a bachelor's degree here at UND.
The General Education Mobile (GEM) program is designed to provide general education opportunities for any active Airmen and women of the United States Air Force, Air Force Reserve or Air National Guard pursuing an associate's degree from the Community College of the Air Force (CCAF).
