First-Time Freshman Admission Information
While admissions requirements vary for different types of students, the basics are the same for everyone: Complete an application and provide transcripts from your previous academic experience.
Typically, all paperwork must be completed at least one month before classes begin.
1. Complete an application and submit the $25 non-refundable application fee.
2. Submit an official high school transcript (seven semester minimum) containing the most current class rank, grade point average, and ACT scores.
3. The final, official transcript must include your date of graduation and be mailed directly from your school to the Office of Admissions and Recruitment.
4. Note that we generally require:
A 2.7 high school GPA and rank in the top 50%
of graduating class
An ACT score of 20 or better
Rookie Bridge Camp
If you will be an entering freshman on the Tahlequah campus, you may want to participate in Rookie Bridge Camp, a fun-filled, two-day camp before classes begin in August. RBC is planned and produced by current NSU students so you will get information on what to expect and how to succeed at NSU, as well as a chance to meet other freshmen and upperclassmen.
