First-Year Fall Course Selection

Incoming first-year students:

  • In May, a link will be posted here for you to fill out your fall course selection survey.
  • Mid-July, when your fall schedule is complete, you will receive a postcard with a link to view it online.

Incoming transfer students:

Shortly after paying your enrollment deposit, you will be invited to a new transfer advisement and registration session, coordinated by Nazareth's Academic Advisement Center. At the session, you will meet with a faculty advisor from your major program to register for your fall classes.
