The relationship between the School of Forestry and North Dakota State University was first established in 1968 when the Board of Higher Education approved the "administrative attachment" of the two institutions. The School of Forestry became known as North Dakota State University-Bottineau Branch and Institute of Forestry at that time. In 1987, the name was again modified to North Dakota State University-Bottineau. Now the institution is known under the following name - Dakota College at Bottineau.
