Transfer Visit FAQs

How will my credits transfer to NDSU?

If you’ve scheduled a Transfer Admission Counselor Meeting, it’s helpful for you to bring along an unofficial transcript, documenting the coursework you’ve completed and/or have in progress. In most cases, we can show you how your courses transfer and fit into your desired program of study at NDSU.

Are you an admitted transfer student looking to visit campus and register for classes?

We’d be happy to give you a campus tour and make sure everything is in place for your transition to NDSU, but you’ll need to reach out to an academic advisor to set up a time to discuss your course registration at NDSU. Registration information can be found in the Transfer Enrollment Guide mailed with your acceptance letter. Your Transfer Admission Counselor visit is not designed as a course registration opportunity – we keep that for the advising professionals!

Do you have questions about transfer student orientation?

You will be able to register for classes during transfer student orientation. For more information, visit transfer orientation dates and schedules.

Group Visits

Group visits are available Tuesday - Thursday only and can begin at 9 a.m. or 1 p.m.

Due to limited availability of staff and facilities, we cannot accommodate all requests. Groups are scheduled on a first-come first-served basis and require at least two weeks advance notice. To schedule a group visit, please email Zebulon Watkins.

Group visits are available for high-school and community college students and group size can range from 10 to 100 students. Groups must include at least one chaperone for every 10 students. Chaperones are expected to remain with the group at all times.

If the number of students changes after you have made your reservation please contact our office with an updated number at least three days prior to your visit.

Campus Visit FAQs

What should I do during my first visit to campus?

We recommend scheduling a campus tour and an admission counselor meeting or attending one of our events (weekend event or Discover NDSU). Each of these opportunities will give you a thorough overview of what NDSU has to offer.

I tried to reserve a spot for the visit online, but the date that I want to come is not available. Why not?

The visit for that date might have reached capacity or the university might be closed. Please keep in mind that some dates do fill quickly and you should register as early as possible. If you have a special request, please call our Office of Admission at 701-231-8643 or email

How long is the campus visit?

The average campus visit is two hours. The admission counselor meeting is 30-45 minutes and the tour of campus takes about one hour.

What should I bring with me to a campus visit?

Bring a list of questions you want to have answered.

What happens if there is severe weather on the day of my visit?

If classes are canceled and the University is closed, the program will be canceled as well. You will receive a cancellation notification as soon as possible.

What should I wear?

Dress casually for your visit to campus. Comfortable shoes for the tour are recommended, and a jacket or umbrella are helpful in case of rain. Check out today’s weather. It the temperature falls below zero, your tour will be modified to ensure your comfort.

Where do I park?

Park in the MU Lot as indicated on the campus map. Please do not park in spots designated for administrators or special permits. Don’t forget to display your parking pass.

What will I see on the tour?

A student-led walking tour of campus includes our state-of-the-art classroom facilities, a residence hall, a dining center, wellness center, library, and more.

May I bring a guest?

Absolutely! Parents, guardians, or guests are always welcome on campus. When you register for your visit, please indicate how many guests will accompany you to campus.

I play a sport at my high school. Can I meet with a coach?

The Office of Admission is not able to schedule athletic appointments. Please check out our athletics website at for more information.

Can I schedule an academic appointment?

When you register for your visit, you can indicate an interest to speak with an academic representative. Be sure to plan ahead - we need at least two weeks’ notice to request these appointments. We do our best to get you scheduled with a department but cannot guarantee it.

Can I eat in one of the dining centers?

Absolutely! While on tour, you will get to see many of our dining facilities. Stop by after your tour for a meal. All weekday visits will be offered meal passes as part of their visit when dining centers are open.

I am visiting with a friend and we want to go on tour together, do we need to register separately?

Yes, each student who is visiting should make their own reservation. We will do our best to put you on the same tour.

What if the number in my party has changed since I signed up for my tour?

If you know in advance that you are bringing more or fewer people than you initially indicated, please call our Office of Admission at 701-231-8643 or email
