Getting Registered

Registration Steps

  1. Visit with an adviser to plan and confirm your schedule. 

  2. See the Registration Appointments page for general registration appointment times by student classification, or view your individual appointment online by viewing the 'Student Center' in Campus Connection. 

  3. Clear any holds (negative service indicators) before registering. Holds may be checked on Campus Connection.

  4. If a course has a departmental restriction, obtain class permission from the department offering the course. Departments can process class permissions via Campus Connection or the student can bring class permit(s) to 110 Ceres Hall to be processed.

Student Responsibility

  1. If you were born on or after January 1, 1957, you must prove immunity to measles, mumps, and rubella prior to registration. This can be accomplished by providing doctor's office verification of two doses of measles, mumps, rubella vaccine received after one year of age and no earlier than 1970. Call (701) 231-7331 for more information. If you have not mailed your immunity verification in advance, then submit it at Student Health Service after arrival on campus. Failure to comply will result in enrollment restrictions.

  2. You are responsible for following through on registration procedures. Once registered, if you decide not to attend NDSU, you are obligated to terminate your registration by canceling your registration or completing withdrawal procedures.

  3. While every effort is made to provide accurate and current information, course offerings and other information listed are subject to change without advance notice. If a course is canceled after you have registered, however, you will be notified. It is your responsibility to update your address on Campus Connection or provide the Office of Registration and Records with a current address.

  4. Remember that your registration is not complete until you pay your tuition and fees.

Note: NDSU reserves the right to void the registration of any student who becomes ineligible for enrollment.

Class Permits

Courses that have departmental restrictions require departmental consent from the department offering the course. The department can process class permission via Campus Connection or the student can bring class permits to 110 Ceres Hall to be processed.

Course Wait Lists

For most courses, the Wait List feature will be available through Campus Connection.

Collaborative Student Registration

Students wishing to take courses at other North Dakota University System institutions, concurrent with their NDSU enrollment, may register "collaboratively" in 110 Ceres Hall. Collaborative students do not pay application fees. They may be packaged for financial aid by NDSU for both NDSU and collaborative courses. Collaborative courses are not, however, subject to the tuition cap.

Credit Load for Enrollment Status

Full-time student status:

  • Undergraduates = 12 semester credits minimum (6 credits = half time)
  • Graduates = 9 semester credits minimum (5 credits = half time)

Maximum credits per student/semester:  

Tuition and fees are calculated using 12 credits as full-time (tuition cap) for both undergraduate and graduate students.
