Prospective UND parents

Choosing the right university can be a stressful time for you and your prospective student. We're here to help make that decision a little less daunting.

A Future that Works

Your future UND student will work alongside dedicated professors who strike a balance between classroom learning and hands-on experience. Class sizes are small enough that professors get to know students personally, while challenging them to a higher standard, helping them develop into a critical and creative thinker, writer and speaker.

A UND degree also has tangible results. Ninety-six percent of UND graduates are employed or pursuing graduate degrees. Plus recent grads earn an average salary of $51,000.
