Class of 2023 - Week 7
Attachment: UND Housing Email
Hello Class of 2023,
I hope this email finds you all healthy and well. It’s a dreary day in eastern North Dakota, but I hope the sunshine returns tomorrow! If you need to access the UND Class of 2023 page, click HERE! Just a reminder, we will post all emails and resources shared through weekly emails on this page, so you can access it any time.
I’ve received a couple questions and wanted to address them with all incoming students:
- Fall registration – registration will open for all 1L students in the beginning of June. An email will be sent to you once registration is open. Reminder that you will have had to claim your student ID account before registering if you haven’t already done so.
- Establishing ND residency – For those who were planning on establishing North Dakota residency while at UND Law to get in-state tuition rates for future academic terms, even with COVID-19/pandemic, you will still need to have proof of ND residency for 12 consecutive months before tuition rates can be changed. If you are concerned with finding housing, there are on-campus options for law students to allow you to reside in North Dakota and give you the opportunity to meet the residency requirements (information required for residency is listed below along with a link to the ND Century Code). I have attached an email from UND regarding on-campus housing and their proactive steps to ensuring students’ safety.
To provide proof of residency, students must submit both:
- A valid ND Driver’s License issued one year prior to your application date.
- Proof of residency that verifies your (at least) one year residence in ND (i.e. utility bill, lease agreement, mortgage statement). If the student’s name is not printed on the document, it cannot be used for proof of residency for tuition purposes.
- If you graduated from a North Dakota high school, you qualify for in-state tuition. If you are listed at any other tuition rate on Campus Connection, please let us know.
- If you are a veteran, or a spouse or dependent of a veteran, you may qualify for in-state tuition.
As Law Students, you have access to services on the UND campus, like other UND students. I wanted to highlight some of those services below.
- Emotional Wellness – UND offers a variety of ways to support you as a student through the University Counseling Center.
- Medical Services – Student Health Services is located on campus to provide students with a variety of medical care services and includes an on-campus pharmacy.
- Physical Wellness – The UND Wellness Center offers a variety of programs including group exercise, personal training, rock climbing, wellness education, cooking classes and intramural sports.
- U Card – The U Card is more than just a picture of you! Your U Card can be used in the community too.
- Public Transportation – Driving to campus is not the only way to get to UND School of Law – Campus Shuttle and Cities Area Transit.
- Additional resources to support students can be found on the Diversity & Inclusion page.
The Law School likes to have fun too! Here is information highlighting the law school sporting events!
Lastly, I encourage you to check out the UND School of Law blog page. The most recent article highlights one of your future faculty members, Professor Jackson, and her work at the Annual Fair Housing Conference. There are many more articles showcasing the accomplishments of many UND Law alumni and we hope to showcase your successes in the future.
Have a fantastic rest of your week! If you are still in school and taking finals this week or in the future weeks, we wish you the best!! Don’t forget to reach out if you have questions.
