Request an Affiliate Account/Renew an Affiliate Account

The request and renewal process for affiliate accounts is being updated in calendar year 2021. Please check back here each time you need to request an affiliate account, as these procedures are likely to change throughout the year as we get closer to a new affiliate account system.

Requests: A temporary process to request a new affiliate account is

  1. The sponsor should submit the affiliate account request form (requires NDSU login)
  2. Respond to any request inquiries, if applicable
  3. Forward relevant information to the affiliate, once the account is approved and created
Renewals: We will share more information about renewing affiliate accounts once it is available. Expirations are not processing for accounts created before 5/2021 so there is no procedure needed to renew existing affiliate accounts at this time. Cleanup will occur later this year. If you need an affiliate account to be deleted because the affiliation has ended, please contact the IT Help Desk.

Request a Blackboard Affiliate Account

The Blackboard Affiliate Account request form should be filled out by the sponsor.
  1. Go to the NDUS Blackboard Affiliate Request Form and login with your NDUS credentials
  2. Fill out all the information that is requested:
    • Sponsor Email Address
    • Justification
    • Affiliate First Name
    • Affiliate Last Name
    • Affiliate Email Address
  3. Click Submit
You will be notified when the account has been created and what account you will need to add to your course. The individual that is getting the affiliate account will receive an email with directions on how to activate the account.
