Transfer Student Orientation

Welcome to NDSU! We look forward to helping you prepare for a successful transition. We do this with orientation modules that you may complete independently as well as an Orientation event. The modules will provide important information about academics, finances, campus resources and more. To access the orientation modules, log into Blackboard with your N.D. System ID. Make a reservation for an Orientation event below.

Virtual Orientation

Join us for a virtual Transfer Student Orientation when you will learn about campus housing or commuter student services, meet other new students and learn about campus life, and meet faculty and staff from your academic college.

In-Person Orientation

There is one in-person Orientation available on August 20. The in-person Orientation has limited space and is therefore available only to those who are unable to meet in June or July. During the in-person Orientation, you will learn about academics, finances, campus resources, and will have lunch. You will also have a choice of breakout sessions for specific topics like residence life or campus safety.
