MILITARY FRIENDLY.

FUTURE READY.

The University of North Dakota is proud to serve those who serve our country. Through UND Online & Distance Education, you can take advantage of convenient programs and services that fit your life as a military service member, veteran, or family member.

Support You Deserve

UND is one of the top schools in the nation for online military-friendly schools, according to the 2012 Guide to Online Schools, a leading education portal. UND's online programs were ranked #3 in the nation on the Guide’s list after an evaluation of more than 200 accredited online schools.

In addition, UND has been honored as a "Military Friendly School" by Military Advanced Education and G.I. Jobs magazines, which places the University in the top 15% of colleges, universities, and trade schools who make increased efforts to cater to the military community.

In-State Tuition & Financial Aid

As an active duty U.S. military service member, veteran, North Dakota National Guard member, or spouse, you will be assessed the in-state tuition rate regardless of your residency status. Dependents of active duty U.S. military service members and North Dakota National Guard members also qualify for the in-state tuition rate regardless of residency status.

In addition, you may be eligible for other tuition assistance programs, including:

Online Education Designed for You

Degree & Graduate Certificate Programs

As a military service member, veteran, or family member, you can begin earning your degree or graduate certificate from the University of North Dakota without interrupting your military life. Programs start each semester, and many do not require you to come to campus at anytime. You will need to follow the admissions requirements for undergraduate or graduate students in order to be accepted to an academic degree or graduate certificate program at UND.

Keep in mind that some distance degree and graduate certificate programs do require minimal on-campus time. This may mean that you will need to travel to Grand Forks, North Dakota, in order to complete your program.

College Credit Courses

As a military service member, veteran or family member, you can earn academic credit by completing online college credit courses. By registering as a non-degree seeking student, you may take a maximum of 15 undergraduate credits or 9 graduate credits.

You may be eligible for education benefits or military tuition assistance dependent upon your command and other service factors. Please check with your military education or veterans' administration office prior to registering for online college credit courses. Once you determine your eligibility, you may choose the course(s) you wish to take and contact UND Online & Distance Education to complete your registration.

You have two options for completing courses for college credit:

Independent Study Courses
Semester-Based Courses

Upon registration, you will be assessed a 1-time, non-refundable admission fee of $35 (USD). If you plan to earn your degree from UND, you must apply for full admission as a degree-seeking student.

Career & Personal Development (Non-Credit) Courses

Active Duty Military Personnel

As an active duty military service member, you can prepare to start a new career after service or simply add to your credentials by taking an online training course. You can enroll at any time and complete the course at your own pace. Once you have finished your course, you will be awarded a certificate of completion from the University of North Dakota for Continuing Education Units (CEUs).

You may be eligible for military tuition assistance dependent upon your command. Please check with your education service office prior to registering for online certificate and training programs. Once you determine your eligibility, you may choose the course you wish to take and contact UND Online & Distance Education to complete your registration.
