All students new to NSU (freshmen and transfer students) must register for their first-semester classes with their advisor prior to attending orientation. In order to do so, please complete the steps on the New Student Information page.
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 advisors if interested in any of these options.
First-time-in-college students who have earned college credits while in high school may elect not to transfer their college credits into NSU. In some cases, this would enable a student to retake a specific course at NSU without financial aid limitations. If this applies to you, notify your advisor and complete the necessary request before the end of the drop/add period of your first semester at NSU. Please discuss with your advisor in advance if you have any questions.

The deadline for submission of the Credit Award Adjustment Form is by the “end of drop/add” of the first enrolled semester for students to request that incoming college credit or credits are not applied towards their degree. For the 2020/2021 academic calendar, the drop/add dates are as follows:
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 CAPS.
Bring a tentative class schedule with you when registering for courses with your 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.
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.
