Entering Naz in August 2020?

Step 1

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.

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 and staff. Read other posts.

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

Step 3

Activate your MyNaz credentials: Within 48 hours after paying your deposit, 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 MyHousing, NazNet Self-Service, Handshake (jobs on and off campus), and tools you'll use once classes start.

Step 4

Plan to celebrate with us!

We'll hold evening receptions for accepted students and family members March 12 in Buffalo and on March 18 in both Albany and Syracuse. Details about the Rochester reception will be shared soon.

And be sure to attend a #NazBound Day!
