It can be tough to earn an entire degree when you have a busy schedule, but online distance learning degrees are just within reach. While some online learning degrees require that some in-person classes are taken at their physical campus, the University of North Dakota (UND) allows students from all over to earn their full degrees online.

UND is located in Grand Forks, North Dakota and is the largest university in the entire state. UND was established in 1883, making it the oldest learning institution in the state, and was largely founded as a liberal arts college. UND enrolls more than 14,000 students annually, and is particularly known for its School of Aerospace Sciences.

UND offers mainly asynchronous classes, meaning that students are not required to be in front of a computer at a specific time. Some courses will require live web discussions, and so students will be made aware of the time at which they need to sign in to class ahead of time. They can access their courses at any time, day or night, and complete assignments as it is convenient for them. Instructors will set their own deadlines as to when assignments and exams are due. Exams can be taken online and, in some cases, may require that the student find a test proctor local to them to administer the exam.
