Family Member Checklist

Before your Family Member Starts College:

  • Ensure your family member’s FINAL official transcripts have been received by Enrollment Services. Transcripts MUST be received by January 9, 2017 for Spring semester (Questions: 701-671-2521).
  • Ensure your family member’s Immunization Records (MMR, Meningococcal) have been received by Student Health Services (Questions call: 701-671-2286).
  • Ensure your family member has completed the FAFSA (NOTE: the FAFSA process may take a month to complete).
