If attending on-campus classes is not an option for you, you may choose from several other options, including:

1. UND College of Business & Public Administration Challenge Exam

2. Online Courses through UND Online & Distance Education

You may complete MBA prerequisite courses by completing online semester-based or open-enrollment independent study courses from UND.

*Open enrollment, independent study courses are not eligible for financial aid; however, alternative loans are accepted. 

3. National CLEP Exam
