Policies & Procedures
Follow these policies and procedures if you are a military-affiliated student at UND.
Available upon request. In order to receive advance pay, you must apply at least 30 days before the first day of classes.
You cannot be certified/draw benefits for an audited course. Tutoring is available, if needed, up to $600. If you need tutoring, please visit Veteran & Military Services to pick up the appropriate forms.
If changing your major, please contact the college of your new major. They will be able to process your request and get your degree updated in Campus Connection.
If you drop a course during the semester, the VA may consider the drop retroactive to the start of the semester/course. If this changes your enrollment status, an overpayment or VA debt may occur.
If you change classes after requesting to use benefits, you must complete the "Submit Schedule Changes" form.
Due to the shortened terms of summer, changes to your class schedule will affect your payment.
We recommend students submit deployment orders to Veteran & Military Services. Students are also advised to meet with each instructor to determine which of the following options is the best choice:
- Taking a grade for the course based on your work to that point, if the instructor feels you have completed enough of the course to grant a grade at that time
- Taking an incomplete and finishing the coursework upon your return
- Withdrawing from the course(s)
Veterans and service members training at less than half time will be paid only tuition and fees for the entire term.
The VA will count part-term courses toward your enrollment status only while that course is actually in session.
"U" Grades: The VA will not credit a course toward your enrollment status if the final grade is a "U". This can lead to an overpayment situation at the end of a semester.
"I" Grades: If an "I" grade is not made up within one year, the VA will deduct those credits from your enrollment status for that term and an overpayment situation may result.
Enroll Anytime courses may be taken for college credits that are applied towards a degree.
These courses are not eligible for Federal Financial Aid, Federal Tuition Assistance or VA Education Benefits.
Military-affiliated students have the privilege of priority registration for the fall and spring semesters. This is an exceptional opportunity and an example of UND’s commitment to being Military-Friendly. By using priority registration, students are able to obtain ideal schedules in most cases; thus avoiding scheduling conflicts with outside commitments, training, or appointments.
All students need to be fully prepared to use priority registration. Prior to enrolling in courses, a student should schedule an appointment with their academic advisor well in advance. Once registered, make sure to complete the online form to use your education benefits at UND for the upcoming semester.
You must maintain satisfactory academic progress in order to continue receiving your benefits. The VA will terminate your benefits when probationary status continues past two semesters or when you are dismissed. At this time, reinstatement by the University is all that is required for UND to re-certify you for benefits.
- No late fee will be charged to a returning service member their first semester back at UND.
No late fee will be charged to a student who is using VA education benefits to pay tuition and fees.
Students under all chapters are eligible to apply for VA work-study positions. You must be enrolled at least ¾ time and drawing your benefits. Please contact Veteran & Military Services if you are interested.
Students must complete the Withdrawal form online for the Registrar's Office. Students should also complete the Submit Schedule Change form for Veteran & Military Services.
