North Dakota State University Reviews

5 reviews
I’m happy with my specific program but there are some major issues with the Graduate School in general. The largest issue is the lack of health insurance. No graduate student gets health insurance through the Graduate School and the majority of graduate students do not have health insurance. Another issue is their failure to keep track of their own requirements. I almost didn’t get my tuition waiver this semester because they didn’t register that I had finished my Baseline Safety Training. I had to resubmit my proof of completion several times even though it should have been automatic.

North Dakota State University has opened the doors to so many new things in my life. There is a huge diversity in student life, where you can meet people from across the world! Professors on campus are here not only to teach but mentor you as you make your way through the college scene. The campus always has something going on making it very easy to meet new people and allows you to start networking early in your quest for a degree.
So far I believe I made the right decision to accept NDSU's offer to enroll in a PhD program. I had one other solid offer, but my interests aligned better here. I am not disappointed. I have learned so much in a short time and know I have a truly open opportunity to learn more and chase my own passions.
