North Dakota State University (NDSU) is proud of its tradition as the state’s student focused, land-grant, research institution. With almost 14,000 students, NDSU encompasses a broad spectrum of curricular offerings, scholarly activity and service. The University consists of eight colleges whose programs of study include 51 graduate doctoral programs; 83 master degree programs and professional masters programs; over 100 bachelor degree programs; one specialist program; 18 graduate level certificate programs and undergraduate certificate programs.

NDSU joined the ‘top 100’ National Science Foundation (NSF) rankings in 2012 and has climbed to 91st in the nation, with more than $153M in research productivity as of the FY17 reporting period. Because of this ranking, NDSU has become the highest NSF ranked institution in the five-state region of ND, SD, MT, WY and ID. Those rankings have opened up a steady progression of new partnerships and funding opportunities with other leading universities, private entitie...s and federal agencies, never before possible for a North Dakota university.
NDSU has also solidified itself as one of the most successful overall NCAA Division-I athletic programs in the nation. NDSU student-athletes’ commitment to excellence helped shine a national spotlight on an athletics program celebrating its NCAA Division-I competition. NDSU has for the last several years been one of the top ten winningest overall Division-I athletic programs in the nation, with most of its teams going to post-season and up to national championship levels of play.
