Reduced Tuition - North Dakota Residency

Background Information:


North Dakota residents who attend Northern State University are eligible to receive a special tuition rate.  Both first-time freshmen and transfer students are charged the South Dakota resident rate for undergraduate course work. 



  • The special tuition rate applies only to state support courses - primarily those courses that are campus-based and involve face-to-face instruction.
  • The regental system employs a standard fee structure; state of residence does not factor into calculation of fees. 




For this particular program, no formal application is required.  Eligibility is determined based on information provided on the application for undergraduate admission; approval is automatically conferred at the point of processing and then documented in the student information system.
