Orientation

Welcome to Minot State University

New Student Orientation programs are designed to provide you with information, resources, tools and tips to help you and your family make a successful transition to university life. At Minot State University, orientation programming is split into a New Student Orientation program, for first-year students and transfer students and their families, and a Welcome Week program for all new students. 

New Student Orientation: 
Attending a New Student Orientation will help you be better prepared for your first semester. At orientation you will also be able to connect with an academic advisor, become familiar with your campus, learn about campus resources, and have opportunities to meet new and current MSU students. Several options are available to meet our student needs.

Welcome Week:
Welcome Week is the second step (after New Student Orientation) in your transition to Minot State University. We know that students who attend Welcome Week are more confident when they start classes because they have had time to meet friends, navigate campus, and get settled. Welcome Week introduces and builds upon various communities within Minot State University.

Let’s begin.
