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 SPU Portal and submit your $200 enrollment deposit to confirm your spot.  If you have any questions on this step, please contact the Office of Undergraduate Admissions

SECOND: Complete the New Student Advising Survey in your SPU Portal checklist beginning October 17.
NOTE: Depending on your intended major, placement tests may be required prerequisites for the specific courses you will need (unless you'll have relevant transfer coursework). Your New Student Advising Survey will help you determine which placement tests you may need based on your intended major. You can access all placement tests through Canvas - just click on the SPU Placement Tests module to begin. 
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. If you have new or updated transcripts to submit, please have them sent to:
