The Office of Multicultural Programs strives to help students graduate through recruitment, retention and outreach programs. Recruitment is done through high school, community college and career fair visits. High school students are invited to visit the NDSU campus by making arrangements with the OMP staff. Services to prospective students include assistance with the application procedures for admission, financial aid and housing.
Once a student is admitted, our services expand to help in the retention of the student and successful completion of a college degree. These services include monitoring student academic progress, and referring students to academic support services.
Multicultural students who identified themselves as such in their student records will be included in a Listserv that helps us to reach the multicultural students enrolled in NDSU. News of upcoming activities and programs sponsored by our department, as well as our students services that we offer, will reach students through this multicultural Listserv on Outlook. If you are not receiving emails, please be sure to contact us at (701) 231-1029, or at at NDSU.Multicultural@ndsu.edu, to be included.
