Orientation is the first step toward a smooth start whether you are a first-year student, transfer student, or family member of a student. We are committed to helping all incoming students learn important information, make connections, and feel prepared to begin their NDSU experience. We will utilize online Orientation modules and virtual Orientation sessions to provide information you need about academics, finances, campus resources, student life, and virtually connect with NDSU staff and other students.
Orientation Programming is intentionally designed to...
- Welcome and acquaint new students to the NDSU community and resources
- Connect new students with other new and returning students as well as NDSU faculty and staff
- Increase new students knowledge of academic expectations and processes
- Increase new students understanding of financial processes, obligations, and options
