Technology Fee


Connect ND Fee




**The tuition and access fee are not subject to the 12 credit hour cap.  An access fee will be charged for the following category of courses: Directed Study, Independent Study, Internship, and Online courses. This fee will be paid above and beyond that flat tuition rate for 12 semester hours and may result in an increase in the total tuition billed to the student.

The only exception made for non-payment of this special access fee would be if the course to be offered as Directed Study, Independent Study, Internship, or in an Online format is specifically mandated for graduation within a major, and has not been offered in the regular schedule within the previous two years, i.e., internships required for business majors and offered on a regular basis will not be charged an access fee. Exceptions for payment of the access fee for these courses will be very limited with each exception being granted on a case-by-case basis.
