Differential Tuition - Starting Fall Semester, 2013
In June 2013, the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education approved differential tuition for the NDSU College of Business beginning in the fall of 2013. The approved rate is aligned with the rate already being charged by University of North Dakota’s College of Business & Public Administration. Funds collected from differential tuition will be used to enhance the educational experience of all business majors and minors.
Here is how differential tuition will be administered for pre-business students:
No differential tuition will be charged to pre-business students. Students will not pay differential tuition until they are admitted to their business major of choice. Normally, this means no differential tuition is paid until the junior year or you begin taking 300 and 400 level business classes.
Here is how differential tuition will be administered for students majoring in business:
Once your application is approved for entry into a business major and you are admitted to take upper level courses (300 and 400 level course), you are considered a business major. Business majors will be assessed $150 per semester in the form of differential tuition. This $150 differential tuition will be assessed each semester until graduation. Normally, the total differential tuition cost will be $600 (four semesters as a business major).
Here is how differential tuition will be administered for students minoring in business:
Each business course will be assessed a $12.50 per-credit fee. A three credit class will cost $37.50. Students minoring in business will only be assessed differential tuition for business classes they are taking. The amount you are paying in differential tuition will be clearly indicated on your tuition bill.
No one likes an increase in the cost of college. However, this step is necessary so we can provide you with an educational experience that prepares you to enter the work force. If you have questions please contact Dr. Peterson at 701.231.8651.
