Entering Naz in August? Your checklist:

First step: Pay your deposit

REQUIRED. You can mail a check to the Admissions Office, 4245 East Ave., Rochester, NY 14618. Or you can pay online using a bank account transfer: Use your MyNaz account and password to log in to NazNet; here’s a video showing how.

After deposit: Register for Oak Hill new student celebration

Members of our Board of Trustees and President Daan Braveman invite new students who have made Nazareth their choice (deposit paid) for fall 2016 to attend this celebration. Register here for the Oak Hill Country Club event.

After deposit: Fill out your housing application

Preference in housing selection is based on your deposit date. Living on campus is required for your first two years unless you're living with a parent or guardian within a 30-mile radius of campus. Fill out the online housing (and meal plan) application.

After deposit: health and immunization forms

REQUIRED. Submit your immunization records online. First, obtain your immunization record from your physician's office. Beginning one week after you've paid your deposit to Nazareth, you may use the Naz Student Health Portal to submit the required information. Questions? Contact Health Services, health@naz.edu or 585-389-2500.

Fall 2016 course selection

  • For 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 office. At the session, you will meet with a faculty advisor from your major program to register for your fall classes.

June: NazID, parking permit, and security beeper

In early June, Campus Safety will send you instructions about how to get your NazID (the identification card required for all students), a parking permit (if you'll have a car on campus), and a security escort beeper (optional). Please submit your materials by July 15, so items can be sent to you in early August.

In July: Summer reading

REQUIRED (Freshmen). In July, a message to your Naz email will provide a summer reading assignment that all freshmen complete before orientation. The book will be discussed in your Academic and College Success course, beginning during orientation in late August. Questions? Contact Andy Morris, amorris8@naz.edu.

Undeclared major

If you haven't declared a major, you will get help through our GEM: Guided Exploration of Majors program. If you have questions, contact Josh Hine, academic counselor, jhine7@naz.edu, or call 585-389-2870.

Campus jobs

Will you be looking for a part-time or work-study job? Career Services has the scoop on working on campus, hiring procedures, eligibility, and more. Most Naz work study jobs are posted in August. Jobs will continue to get added. You can sort them by post date to see the newest ones posted.

Information Technology Services (ITS)

What hardware or software will you need? What's the internet access around campus and in the residence halls? ITS has answers.


In the Shults Center, we have our very own Barnes & Noble College Bookstore where you can find all your course books, Naz spirit-wear, gifts, snacks, and supplies. You can also visit the bookstore online.
