Online Orientation

Welcome to the Black Hills State University online student orientation. Please take some time to familiarize yourself with the numerous services and resources available to you as a BHSU student. If you have any questions, please contact the appropriate University Office or Academic Affairs at 605.642.6262.


WebAdvisor is a secure web interface and an online location for students to add and drop classes, look at their unofficial transcript, class schedules, check grades, check financial aid, pay fees, and see their account profile. For faculty, this is a useful tool to see their class schedules, class rosters, and is a place to enter grades and information as advisors like grades, email and telephone. Students, faculty and staff can update information and share this integrated database.

Access to your information does require a username and password and students will be notified of account information when they are admitted to BHSU. If you have been admitted to BHSU, but have forgotten your username or password, retrieve your information from Login Help.

One aspect is open to the public without login, "Search for Classes". This section does not contain any confidential information.
