Student Support

Student Affairs and Enrollment Management (SAEM) at NDSU exists to provide students with inclusive, comprehensive services and co-curricular experiences. Funds for SAEM help students in times of need and provide a piece of “heart” at NDSU — going beyond the general business needs of students and providing them opportunities to come to NDSU, remain at NDSU, and be cared for while they are with us.

Your Giving Day gift will support:

  • The Student Emergency Fund and Food Security Fund — to sustain students’ basic needs during the school year
  • The Degree Completion Program — to fund students who have not finished their degree
  • Rainbow Futures Fund — supports students who are LGBTQ+, non-binary, gender fluid, Two-Spirit traditions or lesser-abled
  • Student Opportunity Scholarship Fund — supports students with high financial needs
  • And many more funds that impact student needs
