UND "college ready" checklist
College is just around the corner! If your student hasn't already done the following, please use this checklist as a reminder for helping him/her to become "college ready" for Fall 2014.
√ Submit FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) by April 15
If your student wishes to receive financial aid, you must complete the 2014-15 FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) online application by UND's priority date of April 15, 2014.
UND's school code is 003005.
√ Claim Your Student Account
To gain access to many of the systems your son or daughter will need as a UND student, he/she must activate his/her student account within the ND University System (NDUS). To claim the account, he/she should:
- Go to UND.edu/claim
- Find his/her student ID number (also known as the EMPLID) by clicking on the "What is Your Student ID (EMPL)?" link.
- Once he/she has the student ID number, click on the "Claim Your Account" link.
- Follow the steps as indicated.
Once the account has been claimed, he/she doesn't have to go through the process again. Make sure that your student keeps his/her username and password in a safe and secure place.
If you have questions, contact the NDUS Help Desk at 1.866.457.6387 or go to helpdesk.ndus.edu.
√ Log in to Your UND Student Email Account
After your student has claimed his/her NDUS Account, he/she will need to log in to his/her UND student email account to receive official University email communications regarding financial aid, housing, and more. To claim the account, he/she should:
- Go to UND.edu/tech-support.
- Click on the "Students" tab.
- Click on the "Email" icon.
- Watch the video tutorial and follow the directions for accessing the student email account.
If you have questions, contact UND Tech Support at 701.777.6305.
√ Accept / Decline Financial Aid Awards
Once your FAFSA application is processed, watch your mail now for the " Finance Your Future " brochure from the UND Student Financial Aid Office. It will list detailed directions to accept or decline financial aid awards.
If you have questions contact the UND Student Financial Aid Office.
√ Apply for Housing
Did your student apply for housing yet?
If your answer is no, he/she should apply for residence hall housing soon. Room assignments are made in the order the application is received.
If your answer is yes, the next step is to sign the 2014-15 Room and Meal Plan Contract and pay the $250 first installment. Complete this before May 1, and he/she will be included in our first round of assignments!
