Parents and Families

Supporting Your Student

As parents and family, you play an important role in your student’s college journey. We want you to feel well informed and supported throughout every stage of the process so you can be confident about the value of an NDSU education.


Virtual Information Sessions

Join the Office of Admission for virtual information sessions that are designed to quickly cover specific topics like housing, supporting your student, financial aid and scholarships. These sessions are for parents and family members but anyone is welcome to join. This is a great time to ask your questions and learn more about your student's exciting path to NDSU. Can't make it? Check back here later and we will record these sessions and post them here.
