First Year Students
If you are a graduating high school or home school student, even if you have earned college credit while in high school, then you will complete the First Year or Freshmen application. This is also true if you've received a GED in lieu of a high school diploma and have not enrolled at any other college or university.
- Applications, along with the non-refundable $40 application fee, can be submitted the The Common Application or at love.nnu.edu/apply.
- NNU admissions requires a writing sample before making an admission decision. The essay on The Common Application or the one found in the NNU candidate portal is acceptable.
- Arrange for a current high school transcript to be sent to NNU Undergraduate Admission. You must also request that an official final transcript be forward to NNU no later than August 15th. If you've completed the GED in lieu of high school, submit the results of that test.
- All first year student applicants are required to take either the ACT (NNU Code 0924), SAT (NNU Code 4454) or Classic Learning Test (CLT) before they can be granted admission to NNU. The optional writing test on either the ACT or the SAT is not required. The test may be taken more than once and students may apply for admission before taking the tests.
