You are invited to attend Orientation and Registration for all new transfer and non-traditional students. We encourage all new NDSU transfer and non-traditional students to attend; however, we understand that you bring experience with you, so we have provided a variety of options.
On-Campus Orientation and Registration
On-campus orientation and registration sessions are available to assist your transition to NDSU this spring. On the orientation and registration day, students will have the opportunity to learn about general financial aid information, the payment process, and student services. Students will also meet with an academic advisor and register for classes. We ask that students register for the day to ensure that all necessary documents are processed to facilitate registration.
An online orientation has been developed to supplement your on-campus orientation and registration. Information on student services, academic services, student finances and a Campus Connection tutorial is available online. After activating your electronic ID and password, go to https://bb.ndsu.nodak.edu, log in and click on Online Orientation under My Courses.
In collaboration with the campus community, new student programs provide services and assistance to aid new students and their families in the transition to NDSU and support students in their academic and social integration into the life of the University.
