North Dakota is home to 21 Title IV degree-granting colleges and universities. Each school has met five strict requirements, established by the U.S. Department of Education, which makes them eligible for Title IV financial aid programs. Title IV status is also an excellent indicator of a top-tier school. The five requirements are as follows: (1) Title IV schools have accreditation recognized by the U.S. Department of Education, (2) they have been in business for at least 2 years, (3) they have signed a participation agreement with the Department, (4) they grant an associate's degree or higher, and (5) they offer a program of at least 300 clock hours in length.
