Application Note: We recommend using Google Chrome when completing the application. If you run into issues with items not displaying in the application, try clearing your cache and cookies.
Aerospace Students: Due to the popularity of the Aviation Management, Commercial Aviation and Unmanned Aircraft Systems programs, UND is unable to accept transfer students in these programs for the Spring and Summer 2020 terms. If you are a transfer student applying for one of these programs, please select Fall 2020. Applying ASAP is strongly encouraged.
Undergrad students who leave the University for at least one semester, not including summer semester, are required to apply for readmission.
Request that your official college and high school transcripts be sent directly from all previously attended schools (including any study abroad coursework**) to:
UND Office of Admissions
3501 University Ave Stop 8357
Grand Forks, ND 58202-8357
If you've completed 24 (including in progress) transferable college credits from an institution accredited by a regional or national accrediting organization recognized by the Council for Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA), including the American Council on Education (ACE), you do not need to send your high school transcripts.
Coursework taken outside the U.S. may require additional evaluation by World Education Services (WES ICAP).
If necessary, request that your official standardized test scores be sent to UND:
If you're 25+ years old on the first day of class OR you've completed 24 (including in progress) transferable college credits after graduating high school, you're not required to submit ACT or SAT test scores. However, if you've taken the ACT or SAT, it's highly recommended that you submit your official scores to UND for proper placement into English and math courses.
Note: If transcripts and test scores are needed, self-report on the application for a quicker admission decision. We can make a preliminary admission offer if you meet our admission guidelines. You’ll be asked to confirm your academic status by providing an official transcript and test scores.
