  • Click the “Forgot My Password” link on the “Menu”. Do not select “Obtain a User Account” or “What is my User ID". 
  • Enter in the User ID provided to you by the NDSU department you are working with. Remember to begin the ID with a capital W.
  • You will then be asked to enter your birthdate. After entering please click on “Email New Password”.
  • Your password will be emailed to you at the address you provided the NDSU department your initial charges are from.  The email will come from the following email address: helpdesk@nodak.edu.
  • Note: an email must be entered in order for you to pay charges online.  If you are unsure if an email address was submitted when your account was created please contact our office and we can enter one for you if necessary.

Once you have received the email with your system generated password you can log in to Campus Connection.  Again, remember to begin your User ID with a capital W.

    2. If you wish to pay by credit card, click on 'Credit Card via PayPath'.
      • The credit card payments do not allow you to set dates for future payments.
