Undergraduate Degrees

Online and blended learning undergraduate degrees are useful for individuals interested in the convenience of a flexible degree program.  Students in on-campus degree programs at NDSU or at another university are welcome to take online classes to add flexibility and convenience to their campus course schedule.  Most students will be able to complete all of their courses online. In rare cases, such as English 110, a student may have to take an online course from another institution to fulfill all requirements.  Many NDSU general education requirements can be fulfilled through online coursework.

Online Undergraduate Certificate Options

Undergraduate certificates are useful tools for individuals who either currently have a bachelor's degree and want to earn additional credentials or for those who may not have a bachelor's degree but want to pursue an educational opportunity in a specific area. Undergraduate certificates typically have fewer credit requirements than a full degree.  Undergraduate certificates are stand alone programs and students receive an undergraduate certificate upon completion of the program.  Admission to NDSU is required.

Online Undergraduate Minor Options

Online undergraduate minors are a great way to gain additional knowledge in a secondary field of study. Minors enhance your knowledge and skills without requiring another full major.  A secondary field of study is useful in providing additional training that may give you an advantage in your chosen field of study. Undergraduate minors are available only for NDSU students completing a bachelor’s degree.
