Congratulations and welcome to NDNU!

We’re thrilled that you will be joining the NDNU community and are busy planning for your arrival. You probably have lots of questions about next steps now that you have been admitted. How can I let you know I’m attending? When is orientation? How do I arrange a tuition payment plan? Don’t worry! We’re here to help make your transition to NDNU an easy one.

There are a few items that will need your immediate attention. Start planning for your arrival on campus by completing the following steps:

What you need to do before you start your classes

checkmarkApply for and confirm Financial Aid

To receive financial aid, you must be enrolled in at least six units per semester.

If you have not yet applied for financial aid, please do so as soon as possible by completing and submitting the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA). This can be done online at NDNU’s institutional code is 001179.

If you are an admitted student who has applied for financial aid, but has not yet received your award letter, please feel free to follow up on your application by contacting the Financial Aid Office at 650-508-3600. Please understand that it takes some time, once a student is admitted, for the Financial Aid Office to process each aid request. Please also contact them if you have received your award letter and have questions about it.

You may be eligible for tuition reimbursement through your employer. Students benefiting from an employer reimbursement plan should download the appropriate form, available on the Business Office page.

checkmarkTurn in Final, Official Documents

The Admissions Office will need final, official transcripts for all coursework previously completed at another college or university. Your missing documents must be submitted to Admissions within four weeks of your start date otherwise you will be unable to register for next semester. If you have not done so already, please request that your official transcripts from your previous schools be sent to us as soon as possible at the address below. It is a good idea to request that an extra copy be sent directly to you as well.

Useful Information


Accelerated evening students can only miss four hours in a seven-week class period. Any additional absence over four hours will result in a failure.


Administrative Drop: A student who is registered for a regular 15-week or 7-week course who does not attend the class before Status Day will be administratively dropped, unless the student makes arrangements with the instructor prior to the first day of class. Status Day is generally the third Tuesday of the semester or term – refer to the Office of the Registrar for dates. A student who believes that an error has been made regarding an administrative drop should contact the instructor.

Note: Administrative drop does not apply to courses other than 15-week and 7-week courses.

Administrative Course Withdrawal: A student who is registered for a course and has attended at least one class meeting, but who does not attend the course for two consecutive weeks during which course meetings are scheduled, may be administratively withdrawn from the course. Administrative course withdrawals take place after the drop deadline and before the withdrawal deadline relevant to the course. A student who believes that an error has been made regarding an administrative course withdrawal should contact the instructor.

Please review the refund policies in the catalog for dropping classes.


Students in accelerated classes should access an online syllabus for each course you are taking before the first class starts.  Please contact your department advisor for the link for your department online syllabi.
