On-campus Orientations for transfer students starting classes during fall semester 2022 are scheduled for April 22, June 24, August 1, and August 19. Class registration will happen during Orientation.
Complete the following steps to register for classes.
STEP 1: COMPLETE PRE-REGISTRATION ACTIONS
- Send your in-progress and official college transcripts to the NDSU Office of Admission.
- If you have ACT or SAT scores and/or Advanced Placement (AP) scores, please send those to the NDSU Office of Admission.
- Complete the NDSU math placement test and English placement survey
- If your major has changed, please email your full name and intended major or call (800) 488-6378 (option 2)
STEP 2: COMPLETE THE YOU BELONG HERE ONLINE ORIENTATION
You Belong Here is an online orientation that provides foundational information for beginning your NDSU experience. Completion is required before you can register for classes. Be sure to submit the post-orientation survey at the end of You Belong Here to fulfill this requirement. Use your NDSU electronic ID to log in. Family members may also create a guest login so they can be well informed.
STEP 3: MAKE A RESERVATION FOR ON-CAMPUS ORIENTATION
Within 2 business days of completing the steps above, you will receive an email with a link to make a reservation for on-campus Orientation. Attendance is strongly recommended, and guests are invited to attend a family orientation that runs concurrently with the student orientation. Family members and students follow different schedules for the majority of the day, and family members may not be present during class registration due to space constraints. You will begin making connections, engage with campus services, and learn more about the NDSU experience that awaits you. You will also meet with an Academic Advisor and register for classes.
If you choose not to attend on-campus Orientation, you will need to contact an Academic Advisor to know courses recommended for you, and then register for classes. The name and contact information for an Academic Advisor will be included in the email that you will receive after completing steps 1 and 2 above.
