Distance Engineering Majors
The College of Engineering and Mines currently offers five of our engineering degree programs (chemical, civil, electrical, mechanical and petroleum) through a distance delivery mode called the Distance Engineering Degree Program (DEDP). Our undergraduate engineering degree programs (on-campus and distance) are accredited by the EAC of ABET.
Our DEDP delivery mode offers non-traditional engineering students an opportunity to complete most of their undergraduate degree coursework in our accredited undergraduate engineering programs through the internet. Students are required to complete their laboratory requirements through accelerated summer courses at UND. Since our DEDP students experience the same lectures and coursework requirements as our on campus students, we consider this education experience to be essentially equivalent.
- The student applies to UND. A complete application includes completion of the online application form, receipt by UND of all required transcripts, and payment of the application fee and first semester tuition deposit.
- DEDP Application Deadlines:
- Fall Term February 1
- Summer Term February 1
- Spring Term September 1
- If your application is not complete by the application deadline for the term you request, your admission will automatically be processed for the next available term (e.g. application complete February 2 for summer admission will be admitted for spring).
- The student will be notified regarding admission to UND. At this point, any transfer credits not covered by existing transfer agreements will be listed as ‘MATH 1XX’, etc. Student is not yet ready for academic advising or course registration.
- The student should claim their Identity Management (IDM) and UND email accounts.
- The student's file is sent to the College of Engineering and Mines for an individual review of transfer credits. Student should send academic catalog descriptions (from the semester each course was taken) and syllabi to firstname.lastname@example.org, for all math, science, engineering, and technology courses they would like considered for credit towards their engineering degree. No math, science, engineering or technology courses will be evaluated for transfer credits without these supporting materials.
- Once the individual review is completed, the student will be emailed a two-page status sheet showing any degree requirements that have been satisfied by transfer credits and all remaining degree requirements. At this time, the student will have an academic advisor assigned and can begin planning for their first semester of enrollment.
- If you have not previously completed a college-level mathematics course, information about the required math placement exam can be found here. Completion of the placement exam is required before enrolling in math courses at UND.
Transfer courses can receive either global UND equivalency (e.g. equivalent to PSYC 111 at UND) or program requirement equivalency (e.g. accepted by the ME Department as satisfying the requirement for Calculus I, but not accepted by the Math Department as equivalent to MATH 165). Courses that have previously been approved for transfer equivalency can be viewed using Transferology or in the list of program agreements.
For courses that are not covered by an existing transfer agreement (see here for more information), students will need to submit course descriptions and syllabi (from the semester the course was taken) for review. The materials should be sent to:
- Essential Studies Courses Joan Enlow, email@example.com
- Math, Science, Engineering, Technology Courses firstname.lastname@example.org
In some cases, the course syllabus from the semester it was taken may need to be submitted.
Note: if you have more than 95 credits on your college transcript (including all transfer credits), and wish to transfer additional coursework to UND after you have been admitted, you will need to complete the last 30 petition and have it signed by your advisor and the CEM Associate Dean, Dr. Cavalli.
DEDP students pay residency-based tuition plus associated fees. Current tuition and fees can be found here. In addition to the tuition and mandatory fees, DEDP students pay a distance access fee of $170/credit and all engineering students pay a program fee of $25/credit.
