New Employee Onboarding

Welcome to Dakota College at Bottineau

Dakota College at Bottineau (DCB) is excited to have you as part of our team. We look forward to welcoming you to our campus community. At DCB, new hire onboarding begins shortly after the acceptance of a position. To ensure an enjoyable experience and a smooth transition, we have outlined the activities for you to become a member of our team.

Before You Arrive on Campus

Following your acceptance of employment, you will receive a series of emails with information for completing the data and systems portion of your onboarding process.

The first email you will receive will have your temporary ID and password along with a link to enter your Personal Data Information.

Once you have completed the Personal Data, you will receive a second email to claim your NDUS User Account. This will set up an email address and will be used for logging into NDUS accounts in the future. If you already have an NDUS user account, the same website includes links to obtain your user ID and change your password if needed.

After claiming your NDUS User Account, please log into New Employee Onboarding using your user ID and password and follow the instructions to complete the Activity Guide welcoming you to Dakota College at Bottineau.
