Registration & Orientation - Fargo Students

STEP 1: Attend a New Student Registration & Orientation Day

NDSCS New Student Registration and Orientation is a required informational day designed to help new students gain information about academic requirements, course offerings, financial aid and how to become a successful student. Students will also meet with academic staff to develop a schedule and register for first semester classes. Attendance is required. Please plan for this to take about 3 hours to complete, depending on testing.

The information on this page is for students entering NDSCS-Fargo Summer 2020 or Fall 2020.

COVID-19 Considerations

NDSCS is focused on minimizing risk and the spread of COVID-19 while continuing to provide supportive and impactful experiences for our incoming students. To accomplish this, we have made the following modifications:

  • We reduced the number of students attending each New Student Registration & Orientation day by half.
  • NDSCS requests that incoming students limit the number of family members/guests they bring with them up to two individuals.
  • In line with local, state, and federal guidelines employees will be wearing face coverings when social distancing is not possible. Students and their guests are encouraged to bring their own masks or face coverings. Disposable face coverings will also be available.
  • All food and beverages will be served and prepared in accordance with state health department guidelines.
