Step 5: Register

Multiple ways to register for classes:

A) On-campus transfer students are strongly encouraged to attend an Academic Advising and Registration (AAR) program between March and June for a fall start, and in early November for a spring start. Sign up for an Academic Advising and Registration event here

B) If you are not able to attend an AAR event, on-campus or online students may register one-on-one with the help of a transfer advisor. In this case, choose the “Independent Registration” option in the AAR sign-up form here: Sign up for Independent Registration here

C) Another option for students unable to attend an AAR event is an On-Site Registration. We host On-Site Registrations at a variety of two year campuses, and this allows students to meet one-on-one with an advisor at a campus closer to them. 2020 OSR Sites include: Alexandria Community & Technical College, Central Lakes College, Vermilion Community College, and many more! Sign up for On-Site Registration here

D) If you know which classes you need and are ready to register on your own, please start here: MyBSU Registration Information

Next Steps:

1) Housing on Campus

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 room you want.

2) 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.

3) 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.
