Americans and dual Norwegian/American citizens make up about 10% of the student body. They attend ACN to study abroad and experience a different culture, be closer to Norwegian friends and family, and experience the daily excitement of living in Norway. Americans study with us for one semester or an entire year; some begin their undergraduate education at ACN, however many have already started their college education in the US.
Students requiring a visa to Norway are encouraged to apply as early as possible before the start of the semester to allow time for their visa application to process. The application deadline for those not requiring a visa is May 1 for fall semester, and October 1 for spring semester, though applications are reviewed all year if space is available.
Please contact us if you have any questions.
Applying to ACN via the University of North Dakota
Americans may use federal student financial aid (FAFSA) to pay for their tuition and living expenses. To do this you must first become a student at our American partner university, the University of North Dakota. Please contact Neva Hendrickson in the Office of International Programs for assistance. Students will then have to follow the application process set by the Office of International Programs and Office of Admissions at UND.
Applying directly to ACN
Americans not requiring financial aid and non-UND students may pay tuition directly to ACN. To obtain a visa the Norwegian government requires you to have 149,000 NOK (60,000 for tuition + 89,000 for living expenses) on hand to financially guarantee your time in Norway. Please contact us for more information on this and application requirements.
Norway is a safe, fun and exciting place to study. We hope you will join us for your study in Norway experience!
