It’s $40 here, $25 there, $35 that way.
Students applying to a school within the North Dakota University System are generally required to pay a $35 application fee, which goes to the university to which the person applies. That current $35 cost is the same no matter if a person is applying to a large school such as UND or a smaller, two-year institution like Bismarck State College. But the North Dakota State Board of Higher Education may soon eliminate its across-the-board fee, instead allowing universities to set their own rates.
The change, which was moved forward by the State Board’s Budget and Finance Committee on Tuesday, Jan. 21, would allow universities to leave the fee rate the same or set it higher or lower.
