College Bound

College Bound Plan of Study

The North Dakota Center for Distance Education recommends the following schedule of study for students who plan to attend a four-year college or university. These recommendations are based on North Dakota University System requirements, but also include the recommendation that students take two years of a world language. Although the following schedule of study will meet most university entrance requirements, nonresident students are urged to consult the college or university they plan to attend.

This is a recommended plan of study, and students do have some choices within the required subject areas and electives. If you have questions about this plan of study, please contact the NDCDE academic advisor, Brian Becker, at 701-298-4833 or Brian.Becker@k12.nd.us.
