ND Veterans Educational Training
Veterans Educational Training (VET) is a free program of study funded by the state of North Dakota to prepare you for a certification program, two-year, or four-year college degree. We will work to help you succeed in post-secondary education through classes and programs designed to ease the transition into life in higher education. Our classrooms are located on both the UND and NDSU campuses, with an option to do online tutoring for individuals who can't get to a campus location.
