Why UND online?

The University of North Dakota was founded more than 130 years ago, but unlike most higher education institutions west of the Mississippi, our focus was not on agriculture. It was on arts and sciences. We take great pride in our history, community and work ethic. To us, the best way to get things done is to roll up our sleeves and meet the challenge head-on.

This mindset has helped us evolve into an internationally recognized research institution — with innovation at the heart of everything we do. And it can help you evolve into a dynamic leader.

Our reputation, paired with more than 120 online degree and certificate programs, has encouraged students from around the world to explore more than 225 fields of study every year. With a low student-faculty ratio, you can work closely with experts in the field and graduate equipped with the insights to lead and the tools to make a tangible impact.

UND has awarded numerous scholarships to online students, so if you would like to find out which scholarships you might qualify for, visit Scholarship Central, our scholarship database. You can also estimate your tuition and fees using our tuition calculator.
