New Student Technology Setup

As a new student at NDSCS, you need to activate your online services by completing the steps below.

If you have questions or need assistance, contact the NDSCS IT Service Desk at 701-671-3333.

STEP #1. CLAIM YOUR UNIVERSITY SYSTEM / CAMPUSCONNECTION ACCOUNT

1. Go to https://claim.ndus.edu
2. Click Claim an NDUS Account
3. Enter your date of birth and seven-digit Student ID number (also called your Emplid)

    • The screen will display your University System username (typically in the firstname.lastname format). You should use this when you log in to CampusConnection, NDSCS Online and other University System services.
5. Click Continue
6. Enter and confirm a new password
    • The password must contain between 8 and 16 characters and all of the following:
        - Letters (A through Z)
        - Numbers (0 through 9)

    • Your email password is the same one you just created for CampusConnection.
    • Your NDSCS email address is your University System username (typically firstname.lastname) plus @ndscs.edu
For example, if your Campus Connection username is Lee.Smith, then your NDSCS email address is Lee.Smith@ndscs.edu.
