IDAs Can Help Pay for College


We connect college students and their families to the economy, change the way people think, raise their economic expectations, and allow them to shape their own future.

The required financial literacy and training helps students prepare financially, academically and mentally for the prospect of going to college. The IDA program will help you reach your academic goals. The IDA program is effective, efficient, and helps participants graduate from post-secondary institutions in North Dakota with far less debt than taking out a loan.

The program can be used at any accredited post-secondary institution in North Dakota towards any degree. A few of the institutions we've worked with include:

  • Dickinson State University
  • Jamestown College
  • Minot State University
  • North Dakota State College of Science
  • North Dakota State University

  • University of North Dakota
