    High school seniors accepted to SD Mines have an online checklist to help them prepare for their first semester on campus (and things are already beginning to come up for fall 2020 freshmen!).
    • From the checklist, students will activate important accounts including their new Hardrocker email - campus offices will start using it right way to share information and updates.
    • February 1st students will be able to fill out a survey which will let the Registrar's Office know to create their fall semester schedule.
    • February 14th the housing application opens for fall 2020 housing - be sure to have your housing deposit ready to save your place in line for preference.
