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 2021 or Fall 2021.

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:

  • NDSCS is following all established occupancy guidelines from the North Dakota Department of Health. 
  • The use of face coverings is optional for NDSCS employees and visitors. Disposable face masks will be provided if visitors wish to wear one and do not have their own.
  • Anyone who is not feeling well, having symptoms consistent with COVID-19, and/or been knowingly exposed to anyone that has COVID-19 is asked to not attend New Student Registration and Orientation and contact NDSCS Admission at 701-231-6935 to reschedule.
