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 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.

Physical Therapy note: The deadline for incoming freshmen to submit an enrollment deposit to secure a place in the Doctoral Physical Therapy program is 11:59 p.m. May 1 online; if using U.S. postal service, envelopes must be postmarked on or before May 1. After that, to be placed on a wait list, please contact John Mordaci, Director of Admissions, 585-389-2834.

After deposit: Watch for MyNaz Account info

Within 48 hours after paying your deposit, you'll get an email from Nazareth's Information Technology Services with the subject "Your NEW Nazareth MyNaz Account Activation." You need that. Use that unique activation link to activate your MyNaz account — which will give 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.

After deposit: Fill out your housing application [due in May]

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.

Fall 2017 course selection

  • Incoming freshmen: REQUIRED. Fill out your course selection survey right away (deadline was May 15). When your fall schedule is complete mid-July, 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.

After deposit: health and immunization records

REQUIRED to start classes. First, obtain your official immunization record from your physician's office or high school nurse. Starting 48 hours after you've paid your deposit to Nazareth, 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.

NazID, parking permit, and security beeper [June]

In early June, Campus Safety mails to your home address 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). Reply by July 15 to have the items sent to you in early August. 

Summer reading [July]

REQUIRED (Freshmen). In July, a summer reading assignment will be sent to your Naz email account to 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,

Undeclared major [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.

Campus jobs [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.

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 clothing, gifts, snacks, and supplies. You can also visit the bookstore online.
