How to Sign Up for NSA

Signing up for NSA is required for new students. We need to know you’re coming in order to prepare your materials for your advisor(s). Here are the steps for signing up:

  1. Log into Banner and go to the Student Menu > New Student Menu > New Student Advising Sign Up.
  2. Submit updated official transcripts for all institutions/testing programs from which you’ve received college credit. To advise you properly, and have you register for appropriate courses, we need to know what coursework you’ve already completed. College-level coursework and credit for standardized exams listed on high school transcripts must be accompanied by official transcripts from the testing organization or post-secondary institutions granting credit in order for those credits to be transferred.

    Have all materials sent to:
    SPU Undergraduate Admissions
    3307 Third Ave. W., Suite 115
    Seattle, WA 98119
  1. Submit your $200 advance payment to the Admissions Office. This establishes your student account, and the funds are applied to your first quarter’s tuition charges.

    Log into Banner and go to the Student Menu > New Student Menu > Advance Tuition Payment.
  1. Complete the required tutorial assignments and placement tests. In order to arrive best prepared for advising and registration, familiarize yourself with SPU’s degree requirements and student account processes before you arrive. The tutorial also contains placement tests required for class registration.
