1. SIGN UP TO ATTEND A REGISTRATION DAY
All deposited students will attend a required spring or summer registration day to register for fall classes, create your student ID card, finalize other housekeeping items and connect with orientation and Student Life staff to start making friends with your new Class of 2021 peers! Registration Days for new students entering in the fall of 2017 will take place on: April 28, June 2, June 23 and July 14.
2. Take your placement exams
If you already have credits earned through a college/university, please request for official transcripts to be sent to Newman University, and notify your admissions counselor so we can make a note in your advising file for registration.
- Your ACT/SAT sub-score will be used to determine the level of your first college math class.
- You will not need to take a placement exam unless you wish to test into a higher level.
- If your ACT math subscore is 20 or below or if your SAT math subscore is 510 or below (new test) or 470 or below (old test), you are encouraged to take the math placement.
- If you wish to test into a higher level course, you may take the math placement exam on campus in Student Services, or on your registration day. You'll be given the option to opt-in when you sign up for registration.
- All students must take the writing placement exam unless they have already earned transferable college credit in College Writing 1 or an equivalent course. If you have earned college credit, please make sure to submit official copies of your transcripts to the Office of Admissions.
- You must take the placement exam at least a week prior to your scheduled registration day.
3. Select a Learning Community on your registration day sign up form
When you select a Registration Day, you’ll also be asked to select two choices for a Learning Community. Each year, new students are grouped into learning communities with their fellow freshmen to study the links between diverse subjects, bond with other classmates, and create a community of active learners.
4. Sign and Return Your Financial Aid Award Letter
If you filed the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) you should have received an official financial aid award letter from Newman. Award letters were mailed beginning in mid March to students who have completed the FAFSA and any supporting verification documents. Please make sure to review your financial aid award letter, make any changes, sign, and return to Newman University as soon as possible! All letters must be signed and returned even if there are no changes in order for all aid to be processed.
5. Complete Your Housing Application or Off-Campus Housing Waiver Request
All freshmen are required to live on campus their first year at Newman, unless your home address is within a 30 mile radius of campus and you plan to live at home with your parents. Make sure to complete your online housing application or the off-campus housing waiver request form.
6. Complete your Health Forms
The state of Kansas requires that each incoming student residing in student housing be vaccinated for meningitis or sign a waiver refusing receipt of the meningitis vaccine. Kansas Statute also requires each student complete a tuberculosis evaluation. In order to be in compliance with Newman University policy, please use the link provided below to download and fill out the forms, or to learn more about these requirements.
Both forms may be submitted in person on your registration day or mailed or faxed to the Office of Student Affairs.
7. Send Us Your final transcripts
Graduated and received your last semester grades? We need your final high school transcript! All seniors are required to send a final high school transcript to Newman showing last semester grades and their graduation date. Make sure to connect with your high school guidance office to have these sent.
Taken college credits while in high school? We'll need these transcripts too! Make sure to put in a request with the college or university you are receiving college credit from after your last grades have posted. Contact the school's Registrar's Office to have the final college transcripts sent to Newman, so we may award you credit for these classes. These are helpful to have before you sign up for your first semester classes.
