New Student Requirements

Welcome to Notre Dame de Namur University! In an effort to make your transition to college as seamless as possible, we’ve provided a list of the items you’ll need to complete for our office before coming to campus.


Notre Dame de Namur University requires that all full-time undergraduate students (12 credit hours or more), resident students, athletes and international students have health insurance. Students may enroll in the NDNU insurance plan or students with comparable coverage may waive out of the NDNU plan. Learn more about health insurance requirements.


All students are subject to immunization requirements upon entry to NDNU. New students must submit an immunization record to Health Services, or provide an immunization affidavit if they have a medical or religious reason for not meeting immunization requirements. Learn more about immunization requirements.
