Merit Pages

Your Merit page gives you the recognition you deserve for the great achievements you make.
Bismarck State College uses Merit pages to publicize student achievements inside and outside of the classroom. Students receive recognition when they make the President's Honor Roll, earn academic and athletic achievements, study abroad, win awards in their area of study and much more. Students receive credit for their achievements and activities, on an online profile - a Merit page - that they can use for jobs, internships, and references after graduation. In addition, students can share their accolades with their friends and family through Facebook and Twitter, and link it to their LinkedIn account.

How does it work?
  • BSC students participate in events and activities around campus and achieve great things while attending BSC.
  • BSC College Relations receives a list of students to be recognized for those achievements and writes a short article.
  • The article is published to the students' Merit page and the hometown newspaper of each student is also sent a notification of the achievement.
  • Students receive an e-mail in their school email account saying they were awarded a Merit achievement badge.
  • Achievement badges can be tweeted or shared on Facebook.
