Credits Not Capped

Credits Not Capped - Effective Fall 2018 (New Tuition Model)

Effective Fall 2018, as part of the New Tuition Model implementation, distance continuing education credits will no longer be excluded from the 13-credit tuition cap. Exclusions include only internship credits via the NDSU Career Center and Teacher Leadership Academy graduate credits via the School of Education. These excluded credits will be charged on a per-credit basis at the North Dakota resident rate.

Credits Not Capped - Summer 2018 and prior

Distance and Continuing Education and Cooperative Education credits are NOT covered under the tuition cap.  Tuition for these credits is always assessed on a per credit basis.

In order to determine whether or not your class is not covered by the tuition cap, you should look at the location code under the class details.
