New Graduate Student Orientation

Participate in orientation

New Graduate Student Orientation provides students a unique opportunity to connect with the campus community, gain a better understanding of the role of a graduate student, and provides resources to help new students learn how to make the most of their time at NDSU. Our virtual format allows for local and distance students to participate in orientation and interact with their fellow classmates from across the globe. Also, new students will get a chance to meet existing NDSU graduate students and faculty members from multiple disciplines across campus in addition to NDSU staff members.

Orientation virtual sessions for all Fall 2021 admits:

    •    Thursday, August 19, 2021 | 7-8pm (central time)
    •    Saturday, August 21, 2021 | 10-11am (central time)
    •    Monday, August 23, 2021 | 9-10am (central time)

Newly admitted students will receive emailed information about orientation including a link to register for one of the sessions. As the dates of the event get closer, however, new students can also register through Qualtrics.
