  • + amount for off-campus (with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus with family
  • + amount for off-campus (not with family) room, board and other expenses * # of students living off-campus not with family)

What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
The University of North Dakota is a great college that offers many different options for student interests. It allows students to open their horizons and experience different programs. Its system is easy to navigate and the advisors are always available for students.
Kirsten from Staples, MN
UND is a great school that has a small-town feel, while offering the amenities of living in a big city. It is especially nice to have only short walks to class, as the campus is so condensed and there is a great school-run bus system. In addition, the classes are not over-crowded.
