Step 5: Register

Multiple ways to register for classes:

At an event:

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

With an advisor:

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. Contact a Transfer Advisor if this is the best option for you. 

At your college:

Another option for students unable to attend an AAR 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. 

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 an advisor after registering.

Next Steps:

1) 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.

2) 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.

3) 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.

4) 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.

5) BSU/Bemidji Resource Guide

This Community Resource Guide will help you as a Bemidji area resident and BSU student with information about community services, finances, wellness, and more.
