Spring 2021 Calendar

Spring 2021 Academic Calendar
Making the transition to college is an exciting time but can also be challenging without a little guidance. For the spring semester, we will be offering a New Student Orientation for undergrad students admitted for the spring 2021 semester. It will take place on January 7, 2021 and is limited to the first 75 students who register through their MyNSU account. The orientation program is designed to provide you with the information, resources, and support needed to help facilitate a successful transition to Northwestern State University.

What to Expect at New Student Orientation:

  • Opportunities to connect with future classmates and explore your campus
  • An introduction to NSU student services and resources
  • Meet with an academic advisor who will help you understand your major and schedule of classes
  • Register for the spring semester

Spring Welcome Back is a spring semester initiative to offer various social and informative academic events for all full time NSU students. Each event is required to follow the University and CDC Covid-19 guidelines and protocols. The guidelines can be found here: Student Affairs Event & Activity Guidelines

All students who drive on campus are required to have a parking permit on their primary vehicle. Students must complete the Parking Permit Registration form located on their myNSU under the Quick Links Menu. The permits can be picked up at University Police.
