July 31, 2008

Classes begin on Aug. 18 at Northwestern Oklahoma State University, and students who have not done so already are encouraged to complete the enrollment process as soon as possible, said Dr. Steve Lohmann, executive vice president.

All first-time and transfer students first must be admitted to the university, then obtain a class schedule and enrollment form, complete the form with an adviser and obtain the adviser’s signature prior to completing the enrollment process. A schedule of fall semester classes is available on the Internet at

On the Alva campus, all new undergraduate students are required to enroll at the Registry Office in Herod Hall. Regular semester hours will be 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday through Friday, beginning Aug. 4 with an extended closing time of 6 p.m., Aug. 18-21. The Alva bookstore will be open the same hours.

Enrollment at Northwestern-Enid, 2929 E. Randolph, will be processed at the Registration Office. Regular business hours of 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., Monday through Thursday, and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Friday only, resume Aug. 4. The Enid bookstore will be open the same hours.

All first-year freshmen must enroll in one of the Ranger Connection classes.

Ranger Connection classes are listed under University Studies in the fall schedule.

Students admitted to the Graduate School may enroll in person or online using the Student Information System (SIS) link on the Northwestern web site. Those graduate students will need their social security and PIN numbers. Students enrolling in graduate courses for the first time at Northwestern must enroll in person.

Payment for fall tuition and fees is due Aug. 18. Students expecting financial aid funds to cover fall costs must have an award letter on file in the financial aid office by that date.
