First-Year Student Orientation

Welcome to NDSU! We look forward to helping you prepare for a successful transition.

Orientation Modules

The orientation modules provide important information about academics, finances, campus resources and more. It is strongly recommended that the modules are completed as early as possible so you may make informed choices and be well-prepared for your first semester. The modules are completed independently by logging into Blackboard with your N.D. University System ID. Click on Courses and then NDSU 2021-2022 Online Orientation. Please also check out the New Student Checklist.

In-Person Orientation

August 20, 9 a.m. - 4 p.m.
In-person orientation is intended for new students who have not yet registered for classes and/or have not completed the orientation modules. It is not recommended for students who have both registered for classes and completed the orientation modules.
