New Student Registration

Welcome to the Wildcat Community

STEP 1: New Student Registration

For Wahpeton and Fargo-based students, the first part of your journey to becoming an NDSCS student starts with attending a New Student Registration day. Throughout the day, you will meet with staff and faculty to discuss your academic plan and register for your first semester classes. Additionally, you will gain information regarding academic expectations, campus activities, financial aid, how to be a successful student and other important support services. All Wahpeton and Fargo-based students must attend a New Student Registration day before beginning classes. 

Online students will start their journey by working directly with a Program Advisor to discuss their academic plan and gain an understanding of class sequencing.
