Financial Aid & Funding

Opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research, creative scholarship and trendsetting professional programs come with a price.

A UND degree doesn’t have to break the bank, but it helps to understand your program costs and the financial aid opportunities to cover them. 

How Much Does UND Cost?

Tuition and fees can vary based on where you live, the program you choose and your eligibility for financial aid. Different programs may also have additional fees. Check with One-Stop Student Services for tuition rates, billing and payment info.
