Web-based tuition and fee estimator for the 11 North Dakota University System colleges and universities now is available on the NDUS Website.
The estimator allows users to make cost comparisons among the campuses and view a list of program and course fees at any one institution. It was created in response to SB 2351, as approved by the 2011 Legislative Assembly.
"Students and parents often voice concern about the fees students pay and how these fees are used," said Sen. Mac Schneider, D-Grand Forks, one of the SB 2351 sponsors. "This tuition and fee estimator provides additional accountability and transparency and will be valuable to people who want to estimate the total cost of higher education at our public colleges and universities. I commend the State Board of Higher Education for creating such an effective, user-friendly tool."
Randall Thursby, NDUS chief information officer, said the Web-based application is easy to navigate and will provide useful information to parents and students. He said work on the site will continue so that more detailed fee estimates can be provided.
