Hi Shawn,
I am 15 and a freshman in highschool! I am looking for a route to one of the airlines. How much is it a year at UND to Major in Commercial Aviation? Do they give financial aid at all?
Also what do they look for grades wise there? Thanks for your help!

I would suggest you check out our website. www.aero.und.edu

That will answer your questions about cost and financial aid.

As for grades, if you have a 3.0 or better and do well on your ACT/SAT you will not have a problem. UND is fairly easy to get into. However, due to dramaticly increasing enrolment. The GPA requirments to be enroled in a flight course are going to be increased.

Hope that helps

Do you mean you have a 0.91 GPA? If you do, college at the university leval may not be for you. You might be able to get into a comunity college and bring your grades up then head to a university.

Good Luck

Sean-

I'm sorry about the confusion. An "A" average is something to be proud of, and I congradulate you! Keep up the good work! (I wish my grades were that good in high school, or college)


Anyway, with those kind of grades you should't have a problem getting accepted at almost any university, and you definatly will not have a problem getting into UND.

As for extra-curricular activities, I would recomend being involved in as many as posible. School sports/clubs/activities are always good. Also, I am a firm beliver in after school jobs. I had a job at the local FBO as a "Line Service Tech." a.k.a. "Ramp Rat" when I was in high school. I learned alot about the aviaition industry, and met some really cool people. My job duties were quite varied. I did everything from pump fuel to clean and wash A/C to clean the bathrooms to driving V.I.P's around. I really learned alot at that job, and I would recommed it to anyone.

Keep in mind though, SCHOOL COMES FIRST. (sorry I didnt mean to sound like your mom just then)


Good Luck to you
I guess we'll see you in the fall of '04
(I'll be gone by then, but UND will still be here)

derek-

Let's just say my grades in high school were nothing to write home about! I dont remember exactly what my GPA was(that was a long time ago)but I do remember it was in the area of 2.5. Also,I got a 1000 on the SAT's and a 28(i think) on the ACT's.

Good Luck
