Course Access
 
Approximately three weeks before the first day of class at North Dakota State University, campus coordinator Stacy Duffield will touch base with students via email.  She will encourage students to look for an email the week before classes start that will include instructions for accessing courses at NDSU.  
 
One week before NDSU classes begin, students will receive Stacy's email which includes their ID number, user ID name, and instructions for setting up their Blackboard account at NDSU.  Students may then set their own password and security questions, choose to forward emails to a different account, and activate their NDSU Live account. 
 
Courses may not be visible to students until the first day of classes.

Laurito_Autumn_Headshot_for_Website1.pngThe Great Plains IDEA program has granted me opportunities through online learning that would never be possible in a traditional setting. As a military family, we are required to move frequently and sometimes unexpectedly. There were times when I lived in three different states in a matter of one year. The Great Plains IDEA program allows me to receive an outstanding education regardless of my home state. I have access to classes and universities throughout the United States to provide a comprehensive array of knowledge in my field. The Great Plains IDEA program has proven to be an excellent fit for myself and for my family.
