The cost for participating in this Affiliate program is determined by the provider and the estimate is listed on their website. If taking part in a credit-bearing program, you are also required to pay a small amount of student fees to NDSU for the term in order to be registered as a full-time student (or 3-6 credits for summer), but NDSU tuition is waived for the time of your participation. You are responsible for the additional costs for the application and course fees, airfare, housing and other living expenses if they are not included in the cost by the provider. To learn more about the cost and payment structure for Affiliate programs and for help with comparing program costs, visit the Program Costs page.
Financial aid and scholarships can be applied toward the costs of a credit-bearing program. Funds will be deposited to your student account at NDSU to pay toward anything due to NDSU, and then you will receive a refund for any additional funds remaining. You will be required to pay the program fees due directly to the provider. Check with the provider about payment deadlines and whether you can make adjustments to your deadline based on when your financial aid will be disbursed. See the Financial Aid and Scholarships page for more information.
