Registering for Classes

Admitted for Winter 2023 Semester - Starting Class in January 2023?

You'll receive an email in October with details about how to get started on planning for your first semester of classes.

  1. Complete Admissions Process

To be sure that your NSU student record is up to date, you'll work with your Admissions Counselor to ensure that you've submitted all necessary test scores and transcripts to NSU. 

Have you submitted your Enrollment Deposit yet? If not, do so here:

Not sure if you've completed the admissions process yet? Contact your Admissions Counselor for clarification.

  1. Complete New Student Information Session

This online course, that you can complete at your own pace, will walk you through important information that you'll need to take your next steps as a new Shark! Once you've completed it, you'll be able to schedule your group advising session with a CAPS Advisor(s), who will help you get registered for your first semester at NSU!

You can find the CAPS New Student Information Session in two places:

1. Your NSU email inbox - you should have an email from Canvas (that's the learning management system we use at NSU) inviting you to the New Student Information Session - click the link in that email.

2. Go directly to Canvas and look for New Student Information Session.

  • You'll see invitation to accept appear at the top of your screen when you log in if it's your first time accessing the Info Session.
  • You'll see the Info Session in your list of Courses.
  • If you don't see New Student Information Session in Canvas:
    • Please be advised that deposits take 24-48 hours to process. You will be automatically enrolled in the CAPS New Student Information Session in Canvas within 48 hours of paying your deposit. If it has been more than 48 hours since you've paid your deposit, or you have other questions about your admissions status, please contact your Admissions Counselor.


  1. Schedule Your Group Advising Appointment!

After you have completed the New Student Information Session, you'll be directed to schedule a group advising virtual appointment with a CAPS Advisor(s). The final module of the New Student Information Session will provide you with two dates to register for an upcoming Registration session. At the end of the group advising registration session with a CAPS Advisor(s), you will register for your first semester as an NSU Shark. 


Once you complete these enrollment steps, you are well on your way to dive in, fins first, to your first semester of classes as a Shark!
