Colleges in North Dakota: Universities, Trade and Technical Schools

North Dakota Colleges Summary

North Dakota has the sixth smallest total number of colleges and career schools in the country, with just under 30. As you might expect, its student population is also small with just under 50,000. However, almost 8% of its population attends these schools (only five US states have a larger percentage of their population in colleges and adult education institutions).

Dorm room occupancy in North Dakota is also unusually high with more than 37% of North Dakota's students living in dorms. Only two US states score higher on this metric. More than half of its colleges and post secondary schools are public, and more than 85% of students in the state attend public schools.

There are only two schools in the state of Montana with more than 10,000 students. These are the University of North Dakota and North Dakota State University.
