Secure File Transfer

Notice: If you are looking for resources on HyFlex teaching, please visit our Teach HyFlex Page

Secure File Transfer allows you to send and receive large files quickly and securely. You can create a unique, temporary link for each file you want to send, and then share the link via email.


Secure File Transfer includes:

  • All files are encrypted
  • 98-gigabyte quota for one file or multiple files
  • Drag and drop or browse and upload an individual file or zipped folder to create a new link
  • Set the link to expire in one to 14 days after you create it 
  • Copy the link to share it via email or another communication tool
  • Option to receive a confirmation email when the file is downloaded 
  • Option to require the recipient to log in with an NDSU account before downloading the file
  • View existing links at a glance, with options to quickly delete existing links and files
  • Create multiple links for a single file to share a unique link with each recipient, which is particularly helpful when combined with the download receipt option
