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).
Note: If transcripts are needed, self-report or provide unofficial transcripts 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 at a later date.
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: ACT/SAT test score requirements are waived for all fall 2020 through summer 2022 applicants.
