The UND Student Fees have a maximum cost of $597.24 based on 12 credits. Students taking less than 12 credits, will be assessed the UND Student Fee at a rate of $49.77 per credit.
The amount of the fee represents an average cost based on the estimated number of students, mix of full time versus part time enrollments and the overall estimated cost of services, activities, facilities and infrastructure. Needs of both on-campus and distance students are taken into consideration and all students are charged based on the number of credits enrolled.
The Budget Office is responsible for the allocation of revenue generated by the UND Student Fees. Use of this revenue is reviewed annually with allocation decisions made as part of the annual budget process. The allocations for bond requirements are set at the time the bond is initiated and these legal obligations take priority in the allocation process.
A portion of the fee revenue is allocated taking into consideration the recommendation of the University Fee Allocation Committee. This committee consists of four students, three faculty/staff and is chaired by the Budget Manager or Designee. This committee is advisory to the President.
Examples of costs supported by student fees include Student Government, Student Health, Bonds, Technology, Wellness, Memorial Union, Career Services, Substance Abuse Prevention Programming, Multicultural Programs & Services, Athletics, Student Success Center and the Judicial/Crisis Team.
Based on a long standing agreement with Student Government, increases to the UND Student Fees are indexed to the rate of the approved tuition increase up to a maximum of 5%. Any increase above the 5% is approved by the President under SBHE Policy 805.2 section 1.b.
