HOWL Freshman Registration Days

You're invited to HOWL.
At NSU, freshmen don’t just register for classes – they HOWL! As a first-time freshman, you’re expected to take part in this important NSU program where you’ll meet with your academic advisor; learn academic expectations; and become familiar with campus.

There’s also a program for parents.  So contact NSU Admissions at 1-800-678-5330 or admissions@northern.edu for assistance. And get ready to HOWL!

 

HOWL Registration

Afternoon programs are scheduled from approximately noon-5 p.m.; morning programs, about 8 a.m.-1 p.m.  You'll receive more information about specific times once you register.

 

HOWL Registration is closed for 2017-2018.
