Registration Resources

A guide through your first semester

As one of the state's oldest teaching institutions, we understand the importance of establishing yourself early on campus. The students that make friends, join clubs and organizations, and find satisfying courses, are those that are most likely to succeed and earn a degree. To facilitate these bonds, BSU has developed a series of programs that help students make those first connections with campus.
