How Online Programs Work
You can earn your degree from the University of North Dakota while you continue to live and work in your own community. Your transcript and diploma will look the same as for a student who graduated from UND by taking traditional on-campus courses.
You’ll receive the convenience of online learning with the personal contact and connection of being with classmates through online tools – ways of communicating across distances, connecting to others and their ideas, and presenting information.
The entire degree program is offered online; you’re not required to come to campus at any time.
“Live” Online Classes
UND’s online courses are treated almost exactly the same as those offered on campus.
As an online student, you'll have the same professors, you'll start and end the semesters
at the same time, and you’ll take the exact same classes as a student on campus.
As an online student in “live” online classes, you’ll:
- Interact with your instructors and other students using web conferencing technology
- See your instructor’s materials as though you were sitting in a classroom on the UND campus
- Participate in “live” class lectures, discussions or chat sessions, which are typically held at set times convenient for most students, such as in the evenings.
- For most courses, if you miss a class you may review recorded classroom lectures and discussions accessible online at any time.
If you're willing to take classes at a slower pace, you'll be able to finish your degree while still working full-time.
