All students new to NSU (freshmen and transfer students) must register for their first-semester classes with their academic advisor prior to attending orientation.
All new students are assigned course placements for Mathematics and Composition based on standardized test scores and/or transfer credit. Students may take challenge/placement exams, prior to start of first semester, to demonstrate a higher level of proficiency in the following areas: composition, mathematics, Spanish, French.
Additionally, prior to earning 24 credits, students may be awarded academic credit for successful completion of College-Level Examination Program (CLEP), DANTES Subject Standardized Tests (DSST), or NYU Foreign Language Proficiency Exams. Students should consult with their academic advisors if interested in any of these options.
Below are the steps to follow:
In order to ensure your academic success during your time at NSU, it is very important that we collaborate as a team. It is important to take an active role in your advising sessions. You can accomplish this by scheduling an appointment with your advisor in-person or over the phone at least once per semester, and monitoring your academic progress regularly. During this time, you will receive personalized assistance in a one-on-one session. Appointments are 45 minutes and focus exclusively on answering your questions, working on your requests, and developing an academic plan for future terms.
Continuing students may register online via SharkLink. If you need assistance, please contact the UAAC.
Bring a tentative class schedule with you when registering for courses with your academic advisor.
Registration for classes each semester is the student's responsibility. Registration takes place three times each year, prior to each new semester (term). For exact dates, please review the current academic calendar.
Academic advisors are available year-round. Please utilize this resource to understand your academic requirements and fulfill your personal responsibility for enrolling in the appropriate classes in the correct sequence.
