NATCHITOCHES – Classes have begun at Northwestern State University but there is still time to register for the Fall 2022 semester.
Registration for fall classes will continue through Tuesday, Aug. 23 through MyNSU and advising is available at the main campuses in Natchitoches and at NSU’s campuses in Alexandria, Leesville and Shreveport. Support staff is available to assist with the registration process, particularly for new non-traditional students, veterans and first-generation students.
“Someone who has never been to college or who dropped out when they were younger may feel intimidated or unprepared to reenroll, but they should know that we are here to help with admission, registration, advising on what classes to take and financial aid,” said Director of Recruiting and Interim Director of Enrollment Management Van Erikson. “It’s never too late to earn a degree at Northwestern State.”
NSU offers many degree programs online to accommodate students unable to attend traditional face-to-face classes, Erikson said, adding that people over age 55 are eligible to take one class per semester at no charge.
Students who have been out of school for longer than two years may qualify for Completer Grants through the Louisiana Office of Student Financial Assistance (LOSFA) or reduced tuition through Compete LA, a program designed to help adults with some college credit complete their degrees.
“I encourage anyone who is thinking about enrolling to contact us and let us help guide them through the process,” Erikson said.
Late registration will run through Aug. 23 when additional fees will be applied. Registration for B-Term classes will be Oct. 9-18.
“Even though classes are underway, it’s not too late to get enrolled,” Erikson said. “We have great advisors and student services staff that can help.”
