Incoming Students

Congratulations on your acceptance to Nazareth!

We expect to welcome you in person, on campus in fall 2020, and we will continue to provide updates via email and on our Students and Parents COVID page. We're committed to providing you with a rich, rewarding first-year experience!

Steps to take

Step 1

If you haven't yet, create your Admissions Dashboard account. Use that to: 

  • Pay your deposit to secure your spot in the incoming class. (Deposit date also is used for housing choice priority.)
  • See your personalized list of tasks to complete.
  • Monitor your progress completing the tasks.

If you've already created it:

Step 2

Join the new-student Community in the Nazareth Mobile App!

  • Download the Nazareth Mobile App.
  • Select "I'm an applicant" and use your Admissions Dashboard credentials (from Step 1) to log in.
  • Select Community.
  • Introduce yourself and get to know others. Post a question and get answers from current-student ambassadors or staff. Read other posts.

The App also includes announcements from the College for incoming students.

Optional: You also can join the private #NazBound 2020 group on Facebook.

Step 3

Activate your MyNaz credentials: Soon after you're accepted, look for an email from Nazareth's Information Technology Services with the subject "Your NEW Nazareth MyNaz Account Activation."

Use that unique activation link to activate your MyNaz account — which you'll need for access to Nazareth's housing and meal plan system, NazNet Self-Service, Handshake (jobs on and off campus), and tools you'll use once classes start. Have trouble with MyNaz? Contact our Technology & Media Service Desk Mondays-Saturdays, 585-389-2111 or and provide your full name and phone number.

Fall Orientation for freshmen and transfer students will be just before that — packed with information and experiences to help you settle in and be successful. See Orientation and Move-in.
