NSA for Non-Autumn Admits

New Seattle Pacific University students at orientation
New Student Advising (NSA) is how new students create and register for their first-quarter class schedule. Students admitted for winter, spring, and summer quarters complete their New Student Advising through one-on one conversations with their academic counselor.

Required steps for the NSA process:

FIRST: If you have not already done so, please log into the Seattle Pacific portal and submit your $200 enrollment deposit to confirm your spot.  If you have any questions on this step, please contact the Office of Admissions

SECOND: Complete the Earning Your Undergraduate Degree Tutorial in Canvas.  Placement tests are often required prerequisites for the specific courses you will need, unless you'll have transfer coursework.  Instructions are provided within Canvas to guide you on which majors require specific tests. 

THIRD: Be sure we have the final or the most up to date transcripts for any college-level work. Please note that we cannot transfer college-level work from a high school transcript, so if you have completed Running Start or College in the High School credits, you will need to request a transcript directly from the college providing credit. 

Begin the NSA sign-up process using the links for the applicable quarter below!  Students who have submitted enrollment deposits but not signed up for NSA will receive check-ins from our office.
