Now that you are officially a NWU Prairie Wolf, it's time to get ready for the New Student Registration (NSR).

Your academic career officially kicks off at NSR. Here are a few tips to help you prepare.

What to bring.

Your parents! Although they will be separated from you for the day, they will be busy getting information geared just for them. They will learn about our curriculum, financial aid, residential education and health services.

What not to bring. 

Your friends. This is a time to get valuable information to help you get a good start academically at NWU. There will be plenty of time to catch up with friends later.

What to wear.

You will be getting your picture taken for your NWU ID card at check-in. This picture will be used to identify you all through your years at NWU, so wear something that will make you proud.

What you will do.

At NSR, you will get your first look at your fall schedule. You will gain an understanding of the Archway Curriculum and the value of a liberal arts education. You will meet with a faculty advisor who will help make sure you are on the right academic path.
