Main Campus Student Orientation and Registration Form-Fall Term

Welcome, and congratulations on your acceptance to BHSU! It's time to sign up for your registration and orientation sessions. New Student Registration & Orientation are separate but correlated experiences that prepare students for academics and campus life at BHSU. Your virtual registration session happens prior to your on-campus orientation. Please note that a virtual orientation option is available for transfer, returning and online students, as well as any first-time student who prefers that option.

Registration is a 90-minute virtual session where you’ll connect with a faculty member or professional advisor to select courses for your first two semesters at BHSU. Our in-person orientation sessions include a built-in advising session for students who need to make adjustments to their schedule or who have additional advising questions.

Orientation is a full-day, in-person experience for students (parent sessions included) that introduces you to our beautiful campus and wonderful community of Spearfish, as well as provides important information about residence life & dining, academics and advising, financial aid, student organizations and resources, and much more. Most importantly, you’ll be able to connect with fellow Yellow Jackets and meet staff and faculty who can help you throughout your journey at BHSU.

Please complete the form in order.
