Steps to Enrollment
We’re excited to welcome you to Nebraska Wesleyan University and P-Wolf Nation. Please refer to this website for the latest new student updates and to get started on a college experience that will change your life. Here’s how.
1. Join the Class of 2025 today. Submit your $350 tuition deposit.
2. Complete your housing request. Every student must complete this form, even those who qualify for an exemption to live off campus.
3. Complete your New Student Registration session. During your session, you’ll meet with an academic advisor over Zoom and officially register for classes. Please contact Drew Carr, Associate Director of Enrollment Operations, at 402.430.244 to discuss your options.
4. Complete your First Semester Advising Questionnaire. Your academic advisor will use this information to learn more about your interests and goals and help develop your first semester schedule.
5. Take the Modern Language Assessment. Complete this assessment if you have studied French, German or Spanish. You will create an account to complete the assessment. Student ID is not needed to create your account.
- Learn more about the Modern Language Assessment process
If you’ve studied French, German or Spanish in the past, we want to place you in the modern language courses that match your current ability. To do that, we use a language assessment test.
- This assessment is only one part of Nebraska Wesleyan’s process. You’ll want to do your best, but there is no negative consequence for a “low” score.
- Please take this assessment even if you don’t currently intend to continue studying a given language. It never hurts to keep your options open.
- There’s no need to cram for this test. We’re simply measuring your current ability. And it’s not possible to “test out” of NWU’s language requirement.
- The assessment will ask you to create an account. You may leave the student ID section blank.
- The assessment automatically generates a score at the end. This score is not your placement. We use this score in combination with other factors to determine your placement. The registrar will note your placement on your academic analysis. You and your academic advisor will then use this information as you build your course schedule.
If you have questions about NWU’s modern language assessment, please contact Katie Whyrick, instructor of Spanish, at kwhyrick [at] nebrwesleyan.edu or (402) 465-2216.
6. Submit your Confidential Medical History Report. This report is mandated by the State Department of Health and must be submitted by all new students.
7. Submit your Disability Accommodations Form, if applicable. NWU is committed to providing access to educational opportunities and full participation in the campus community life.
8. Complete your NWU Computer Services accounts. Once you have registered for your first semester courses, you will activate your university accounts. You will receive an email with instructions on how to complete this process.
9. Submit final transcripts upon graduation.
- Request that your high school submit your official, final high school transcript with your graduation date listed and confirmed. Final transcripts may be submitted from your high school through the following ways:
- A paper copy sent through U.S. Postal Service.
- Sent electronically through an approved service.
- We do not accept high school transcripts that are faxed, hand-delivered to NWU, or mailed by anyone other than the high school.
- Transcripts containing completed, college-level coursework should also be submitted.
10. Send COVID-19 positive results. If you test positive for COVID-19 during the summer, we ask that you share that test result by e-mailing the Student Life Office at studentlife [at] nebrwesleyan.edu. That message should include an image of the test result showing your name, date of the test and the positive result.
11. Complete the “U GOT This” Sexual Assault Prevention and Awareness Training – coming later this summer. NWU partners with Catharsis Productions to educate students on how to recognize, address and prevent gender-based violence on our campus. All students are required to complete the online training module, and instructions will be emailed to you from ugotthissupport [at] catharsisproductions.com. Please check your spam/junk files if you do not see the email in your Inbox.
