Fall enrollment opens March 24 at Northwestern, Scholarship opportunities plentiful for transferring, continuing, first time students

Northwestern Oklahoma State University’s fall 2015 enrollment begins Tuesday, March 24, and summer enrollment is underway. Classes for the summer semester begin on June 1 and the fall semester on Aug. 17. All students are encouraged to enroll right away before classes close.

Printed copies of the course schedules are available at all of Northwestern’s campuses, and PDF versions of the booklets are located on Northwestern’s web site at www.nwosu.edu/course-schedules. At the top of that web page is the link “Updated Course Schedule” that will allow the user to find courses in all programs in a dropdown link format. This location will keep everyone aware of what courses are closed or canceled or if any changes have been made to course times, locations or instructors.

The site also provides color-coded lines to show closed or canceled classes, graduate courses, or if permission of an instructor is required before enrollment in the class can be processed.

All students must obtain a class schedule and enrollment form, have the form signed by an adviser and process the form at the registrar’s office. Currently enrolled graduate and undergraduate students pre-approved by their academic advisers may enroll online or at the registrar’s office, Herod Hall-first floor.

Enrollment at Northwestern-Enid, 2929 E. Randolph, and Northwestern-Woodward, 2007 34th St., will be processed at their registration offices during regular business hours.

New students—both transfers and first-time students—and those returning after being out at least one semester must enroll in the registrar’s office.

Northwestern offers several scholarship opportunities for transfer, continuing and first-time students. A number of participation scholarships also are given in areas such as band, choir, theatre, cheerleading, dance and campus media. Recommendations for these awards usually come from university department heads. Athletic scholarships are awarded through the athletic department. Find a list of available scholarships at http://bit.ly/scholarships-list.

High school seniors who wish to apply for Northwestern scholarships and enrollment incentives should return a completed Scholarship Application with a seven-semester transcript by May 15 (March 31 for best consideration). Continuing students have until March 15 to apply for scholarships for the upcoming year.

Transfer students have until July 15 to complete a scholarship application and provide verification of their cumulative grade point average.
