Tuition, Cost & Aid

Affordability and Cost

Average Net Price Average net price for full-time, first-time degree/certificate-seeking undergraduates paying the in-state or in-district tuition rate who were awarded grant or scholarship aid from federal, state or local governments, or the institution. Other sources of grant aid are excluded. Aid awarded anytime during the full aid year is included.

Average net price is generated by subtracting the average amount of federal, state or local government, or institutional grant and scholarship aid from the total cost of attendance. Total cost of attendance is the sum of published tuition and required fees (lower of in-district or in-state), books and supplies and the weighted average room and board and other expenses.

Additional Costs
Room and Board The weighted average for room and board and other expenses is generated as follows:
  • (amount for on-campus room, board and other expenses * # of students living on-campus.
  • + 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)
divided by the total # of students. Students whose living arrangements are unknown are excluded from the calculation. For some institutions the # of students by living arrangement will be known, but dollar amounts will not be known. In this case the # of students with no corresponding dollar amount will be excluded from the denominator.

What Students Are Saying

3.83 Average Rating
Compared to a lot of other schools, UND is relatively low cost. The state of North Dakota keeps their universities costs low. This can most likely be attributed to philanthropic oil field owners.
Stephanie from Ripon, WI
OOS tuition is very low compared to many other schools. You can get in-state tuition after a full year living in ND. Aviation majors should check out the flight fees and be prepared for those. Flight fees are quite reasonable compared to other programs for a better quality of classes/instruction.
Compared to other schools I looked at the University of North Dakota was way cheaper. You get unlimited meals (if you live in the dorms) and you get in to sports games for free (except for mens hockey, but it only costs $7!)
Cassondra from Ham Lake, MN
You can learn a lot here, and there are a ton of different class to take. They have many different major opportunities and something for every student.
Allison from Fridley, MN
College isn't cheap, but UND is reasonably priced. The classes are well taught, so I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.
Kat
Room and board is a little on the spendy side for students on a budget, but for classes nothing will compare to the price you pay for the kind of education your getting.
Stephen from Bismarck, ND
You absolutely get MORE BANG FOR YOUR BUCK here. Teachers put more effort into teaching, the school is very affordable, offers many different grants and scholarships for students, and their athletic programs are fantastic. I am from california and the curriculum is just as competitive, organized, and proper for the majors that are offered.
