Steps to take this summer

Get excited about your courses

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

Get those health and immunization records in

REQUIRED to start classes. About 48 hours after you've paid your deposit to Nazareth, you can use your NazNet username and password to log into the Naz Student Health Portal to submit your immunization history, health history, and health insurance information. As the health portal explains, also send Health Services a copy of your immunization record. Questions? Contact Health Services, or 585-389-2500.

Take care of NazID, parking permit, and security beeper [June or early July]

As summarized in a letter to your home mail in early June, please take steps 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. Act by July 15 to have the items sent to you in early August.

Dive in to summer reading [July]

REQUIRED (Freshmen). See the email sent to your Naz account July 3 (subject: Freshman Summer Reading Assignment) for a link to a required reading selection. Complete it before Aug. 24, so you can discuss the reading in your first Academic and College Success class, during orientation. Questions? Contact Andy Morris,

Don't worry if you're undeclared [Anytime]

If you haven't declared a major, you will get help through our GEM: Guided Exploration of Majors program. If you have questions, contact Cara Capparelli, or 585-389-2871.

Find a campus job [August]

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 online in August. Jobs will continue to get added. You can sort them by post date to see the newest ones posted.

Check out these tech tips from 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.

Visit the bookstore in person or online 

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

Steps that should be done by now

  • Pay your deposit, either by mail to the Admissions Office, 4245 East Ave., Rochester, NY 14618, or online using a bank account transfer. (Use your NazNet username and password to log in to NazNet. Watch this video, which walks you through the steps. If you need help, call 585-389-2111.)
  • Hold onto your MyNaz account info, sent to you within 48 hours after your deposit is received. The email from Nazareth's Information Technology Services has the subject "Your NEW Nazareth MyNaz Account Activation." You need that. Use that unique activation link to activate your MyNaz account — which gives you access to MyHousing, the NazApp, Handshake (jobs on and off campus), and tools you'll use as a student, such as Moodle, BlackBoard/MyAccounts, and Qualtrics.
  • Fill out your online housing (and meal plan) application. 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.

Mark your calendar

Orientation for freshmen and transfer students begins Aug. 24, 2017. This 4-day event is packed with information and experiences to help you settle in and be successful. Parents are encouraged to attend the first day, which includes lunch for families and sessions for parents.

2017-18 academic calendar has key dates, such as when classes begin: Aug. 28, 2017.
