Congratulations, future UND Fighting Hawk!

Now that you're accepted, it's time to get started on the next steps for Summer & Fall 2018!

After Being Admitted

To gain access to many of the systems you'll need as a UND student, you must activate your student account within the ND University System (NDUS).

To claim your NDUS Account:

Once you've claimed your account, you won't have to go through the process again. Make sure that you keep your username (also referred to as your NDUS.identifier, which is typically firstname.lastname) 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

Before you've registered for classes, please check the email you used on your admission application frequently for official communications from the University regarding financial aid, housing, confirming your enrollment, Orientation, course registration and more.

After you've registered for classes and claimed your NDUS account, please log in to your UND student email account.

Follow the directions for accessing your UND student email account:

  • Review the login information under the Getting Started tab
  • Get directions to set up your UND email on your smartphone or tablet under the Mobile Devices tab

If you have questions, contact UND Tech Support at 701.777.6305. When prompted, remain on the line to speak to a UND representative.

Financial Aid

Go to to complete the 2018-19 Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) beginning October 1. You'll use your 2016 income taxes to prepare your FAFSA. Apply early as funding is not guaranteed through the February 1 priority date!

If you plan to take Summer 2018 courses, you'll need to complete the 2017-18 FAFSA and UND's Summer Financial Aid Request Form (available April 1) and take at least 6 credits to be eligible for summer financial aid.

If you're transferring and you've already completed the 2018-19 FAFSA at another school, you'll need to:

  • Cancel any unprocessed aid from your current school.
  • Add UND's school code to your 2017-18 FAFSA so it can be processed for summer financial aid.

UND's FAFSA school code is 003005.

If you have any questions, refer to the Applying for Aid website or contact UND One-Stop Student Services at 701.777.1234.

Note: Depending on when the FAFSA is received, newly accepted students will receive notice of financial aid awards beginning in February.

Scholarships & Waivers

Automatic Scholarships

If you meet the criteria and are accepted by the priority deadline of February 1 (freshmen) or April 15 (transfer students), you'll automatically be awarded one of UND's academic scholarships.

You'll receive notification of your UND scholarship award beginning in February.

Additional Scholarships & Waivers

You may be eligible for other scholarships and waivers that require separate application processes.

Note: You may accept non-UND scholarships without affecting your UND scholarships. (If you have a UND athletic scholarship, please contact the Athletic Department to determine if you can accept a non-UND scholarship.)


If you're a first-year freshman, you're required to live on campus for your first, full academic year or receive an approved exemption. Visit Housing to learn more about the campus living requirement and to research residence hall options.

After you've claimed your NDUS Account, visit Housing to find instructions for completing the online residence hall application in Campus Connection. The Housing application opens October 15.

A $60 non-refundable fee is due when you submit your application.

Apply early! Your priority for room assignment is based on the date you submit your application. The priority deadline is May 1.

Transfer Students

Visit Housing to learn about affordable and conveniently located UND apartments, University Place and residence hall options for transfer students.

Note: The apartment application is not online and is separate from the residence hall application process described above.

If you have questions, contact the UND Housing Office at 701.777.4251 or email

Let us know you're coming to UND!

If you're an incoming freshmen, you must confirm your enrollment for Summer or Fall 2018 by paying a $200 non-refundable deposit that's applied to your UND bill by the May 1 priority deadline.

You'll need to pay the full deposit before you'll be eligible to take the next steps toward being a UND student, including:

  • Signing up for Orientation
  • Registering for classes
  • Receiving your housing room assignment

So it's very important to confirm your enrollment as soon as possible!

NOTE: If you're a transfer student, you will not need to pay this deposit.

Deposit Details

  • Required of all new freshmen who plan to enroll in classes for Summer or Fall 2018.
  • Priority deadline is May 1.
  • The $200 deposit is a down payment applied to future charges you'll incur on your UND bill (tuition, fees, etc.). It's not an additional charge.
  • Non-refundable, but may be applied to future terms if you're unable to enroll for Summer or Fall 2018. Call 1.800.CALL.UND for details.
  • If you're unable to pay the full amount at one time, you may pay in installments through the May 1 deadline.
  • After you've claimed your NDUS Account, you can make your online payment through Campus Connection via e-check from a U.S. bank (free service) or credit card (2.75% convenience fee). It may take up to 2 business days for the deposit to be processed.

  • High school transcripts do not include official information on college credits earned.
  • High schools are not able to request college transcripts for you.
  • You must ask the college or university from which you earned the credit to send your official transcripts directly to:
