Fees & Other Information
How much will the program cost?
Subject to final approval by the University, the cost for the program will be $3,300. This covers all tuition and fees for the two classes to be offered in Norway, housing at ACN and transportation for any excursions or other events that are part of the program.
Students should estimate to spend about $100 per week on food. Restaurants in Norway are very expensive so eating out will increase the total amount.
Students wishing to enroll in the optional Special Project must pay for the additional course at the usual tuition rate for the UND School of Law's summer session. Tuition and fees for the Special Project in International Law will be the same as for the regular Law School summer session:
North Dakota Residents: $693.80
MN and Contiguous state Residents: $932.86
Are the facilities at ACN, and in Norway generally, accessible to individuals with disabilities?
ACN's facilities are in compliance with the accessibility laws of Norway, which will be adequate for most students. ACN owns a few small houses that could be used by students whose disabilities may render the housing generally provided to students inaccessible.
Norway, as is typical for Europe, has made great progress in providing accessibility to individual disabilities. However, some barriers to accessibility may be encountered in some places. Any excursions and other activities that are part of the summer program will be accessible in a manner that would be expected in the United States.
Under what circumstances is the program is subject to cancellation and what arrangements will be made in the event of cancellation, and prior cancellations?
The program may be cancelled if fewer than 7 students enroll. A decision to cancel would be made by the dean in consultation with the program faculty no later than April 1. Students will be notified that they should make no financial commitments for travel to Norway until after April 1.
The program may also be cancelled if the U.S. State Department issues a travel warning or alert that causes the program director to conclude that travel to or within Norway is unsafe or if the number of students who withdraw from the program because of the warning renders it difficult to fulfill the education mission of the program.
For any cancellation due to under-enrollment, students will be immediately notified by email, as well as through other usual channels of student communication at the law school. If the program has commenced, such as for a cancellation due to a travel warning or alert, students will be personally notified as soon as possible by the on-site Director and the program faculty.
If the program is cancelled after students have paid tuition, any tuition for the cancelled portion of the program will be refunded within twenty days or as soon as feasible. If the program is cancelled after the students have arrived in Norway, the on-site Director and program faculty will assist the students in making arrangements for the return to the U.S., including contacting the U.S. Embassy if necessary. The campus Program Director will use best efforts to help students who have already paid a deposit, if they so desire, to identify and enroll in a similar program.
