2016-17 Undergraduate and Graduate Catalogs



New Minot State University students (freshman and transfer) are required to complete a new student orientation. To facilitate completion of this requirement the campus will hold CONNECT events during the summer and before the spring semester. These events will introduce students to the University through information sessions, a campus tour, academic advising, and will conclude with the student registering for classes. A virtual option is also available for distance students. Information about CONNECT events are sent electronically to all students who have been admitted to the University.


TRANSITIONS is Part II of the orientation experience at Minot State University. This mandatory experience introduces first-year students to campus and community resources that are vital to their success. TRANSITIONS will start on the MSU campus: students will discover student success services and will be introduced to campus culture by a current MSU student (Transitions Leader). After exploring the MSU campus, students will then participate in an off-campus activity, where each student will make a difference in our regional community through service. New Minot State University students will be able to engage with the community, meet fellow students, and learn essential student success information all while participating in this fun half-day program.
