With Online & Distance Education from the University of North Dakota, you can take a course or earn your degree from a major American university without needing to live on campus!
- Interact with your instructors through a virtual classroom.
- Complete your assignments from anywhere—at the time and place of your choice! Many online courses do not require a set class meeting day, time, or location.
- Experience the same quality learning experience as traditional courses.
- Get access to student support services, such as online tutoring, library, tech support, and advising services.
For the majority of online courses, you will be charged the same rate of tuition (in USD) as a North Dakota student no matter where you live!*
This means that if you take online college credit courses, you may save more than 50% on your tuition compared to paying the non-resident tuition rate for on-campus classes.
*IMPORTANT! For select degree programs, tuition is based on your residency status. As an international student, you will be assessed the non-resident tuition rate (in USD). Please contact UND Online & Distance Education for more information.
