Students enrolled in an on-campus degree program, either at NDSU or at another university, may choose to take online classes through NDSU Distance and Continuing Education to minimize the number of classes you need to take on-campus. High school students may enroll for early entry or dual credit online classes. Check with your advisor to ensure the online class will apply to your program of study. Individuals interested in building their professional skills may also enroll in individual online classes as a non-degree seeking student (limit 15 credits at the undergraduate level, no limit at the graduate level).
If you are interested in beginning an NDSU online degree or just want to take a few online classes, please review our Getting Started Guides below. If you find an online degree that may be of interest to a family member, friend, or colleague, don't forget to tell them about it.
