Northwestern State University will hold its annual Spring N-Side View and Credit Connection on Saturday, March 9.
Registration for Spring N-Side View and Credit Connection will begin at 9 a.m. in Magale Recital Hall and the programs start at 10 a.m.
As part of Spring N-Side View, representatives from each of Northwestern State’s colleges will be on hand to explain degree programs offered at NSU. Staff from the financial aid, housing and scholarship offices will also be available to answer questions. A student panel will give a unique perspective on the university. An orientation program for parents will also be held. A campus tour will also be part of Spring N-Side View.
During Credit Connection, students can earn college credit by taking an advanced standing examination which can result in credit being posted on the student’s college transcript once they enroll at Northwestern State.
Tests for English 1010, English 1020, Spanish, Math 1020 or 1060 and fine arts will be offered. Students can take up to two tests at no charge. A reservation and valid, current photo ID are required to test.
Students with ACT Math subscores below 19 or 460 on the SAT or English subscores below 18 on the ACT or 450 on the SAT can take Accuplacer, a college placement test that assists the university in evaluating students in writing and math for placement decisions. Passing the exams can result in students being able to register in college level courses instead of developmental courses. The cost for the exam is $15 for math or English or $25 for both.
To register, contact the NSU Testing Center at (318) 357-5246. The first round of Credit Connection tests begins at 10 a.m. with the second round at 1 p.m.
Northwestern State offers a unique scholarship opportunity for students with strong leadership potential and provides them with a yearlong leadership program. The President’s Leadership Program is designed to promote active involvement in the campus community and provide opportunities for students to build leadership skills together. A PLP Emerging Leaders Day will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. A reservation is required in order to participate in the program. Those interested can sign up at nsula.edu/fye.
Lunch will be available at 1 p.m. for $8. Those participating in N-Side View Day can get tickets to the NSU-Central Arkansas basketball doubleheader which begins at 1 p.m. in Prather Coliseum.
