Step 5: Register for Classes

Register for classes:

With an advisor

Spring semester classes begin January 9, 2023. You are strongly encouraged to schedule an advising and registration appointment with a transfer expert the moment your transfer credit evaluation is complete. Contact a Transfer Advisor to schedule a time that works for you. Registration for spring opens in late October.

On your own

If you know which classes you need and are ready to register on your own, please start here: MyBSU Registration Information. If you choose this option, it is highly recommended that you double-check your first semester classes with a transfer advisor after registering. New on-campus students are encouraged to enroll in Transfer Orientation (UNIV 0001-02) and an FYE (First Year Experience) class. New online students eligible for TRIO services are encouraged to enroll in the online TRIO/SSS orientation course UNIV 1180-90.

On campus in Bemidji

Spring 2023 transfer student registration is handled by one-on-one appointments. Connect with your transfer advisor directly, or submit the Spring 2023 registration sign-up form here.

On-campus transfer students starting Fall 2023 are strongly encouraged to attend a New Student Registration (NSR) program between March and June 2023. Sign up for a New Student Registration event here.

At your college

Another option for students unable to attend an NSR event is an On-Site Registration appointment. We host On-Site Registrations at a variety of college campuses in Minnesota, and this allows students to meet one-on-one with an advisor at a more convenient location. Contact a Transfer Advisor if this is the best option for you. 

Before registration, we recommend looking through the Beaver Bound: Preparing to Attend resources.

Next steps:

Email and student accounts

It’s very important for you to begin checking your BSU email account and exploring your other student accounts if you haven’t already. BSU email, eServices, and D2L Brightspace are linked on the MyBSU page here.

Campus housing

Living on campus means close access to services and a higher rate of academic success. Submit your Housing Application early to ensure you get the residence hall and room you want.

Immunization form

Minnesota requires all students (including online/off-site students) to have documentation of up-to-date immunization against tetanus/diphtheria (Td) and measles/mumps/rubella (MMR), with the exception of students who graduated from a Minnesota high school in 1997 or later. Complete and submit the Immunization Form.

Sexual Violence Prevention Training (SVPT)

The SVPT program provides critical information about responsible behaviors and decision-making regarding non-discrimination, dating and relationships violence, and harassment. You should see the SVPT training module in your D2L Brightspace account. Take the training as early as possible to avoid registration holds.
