Paying for College

Students are responsible for accessing and verifying student account information (tuition, fees, room and board) is accurate.  Bills and account information are available on Campus Connection.

Tuition and fees are due on fee payment day which is the 17th day of each semester.  Per the State Board of Higher Education policy 830.1, institutions shall assess a late fee on balances more than 30 days past due. Students with a past due balance will be charged a late fee of 1.75%.

If financial obligations to the college are not met by the date stated, the account will be considered delinquent, a hold will be placed on transcripts, and students will be ineligible for future registration within the ND University System until the delinquent obligation has been satisfied.

Looking to enroll in a payment plan?

Looking for a tuition payment option that doesn’t involve student loans? Payment plans let you spread tuition out throughout the school year, so you won’t have to worry about a big lump-sum due date at the beginning of each semester.
