Reapplication Details

Reapplication priority group definitions

For Reapplication, semesters of enrollment are determined by the following definitions:

  • Students who entered NAU as new freshmen
    • Total semesters of enrollment is defined as
      • every fall and spring semester in which the student was enrolled in classes at NAU as of the third week of the semester
  • Students who entered NAU as transfer students (those students who attended another college or university after graduating high school and prior to enrolling at NAU)
    • Total semesters of enrollment is defined as
      • number of NAU semesters enrolled (every fall and spring semester in which the student was enrolled in classes at NAU as of the third week of the semester)  PLUS
      • number of “estimated transfer semesters” (total transfer credit hours divided by 15 with standard rounding rules)

Examples

1) Taylor came to NAU as a new freshman in fall 2015. At the beginning of Reapplication in April 2016, Taylor has had two NAU semesters (fall 2015 and spring 2016). Taylor would be in the Priority 1 room selection.

2) Jordan transferred to NAU in spring 2014 and brought in 33 transfer credits. At the beginning of Reapplication in April 2016, Jordan has had five NAU semesters (spring 2014, fall 2014, spring 2015, fall 2015 and spring 2016) plus two “estimated transfer semesters” (33 divided by 15 = 2.2 which is then rounded to 2). Therefore Jordan’s total semesters of enrollment would equal seven (5 NAU + 2 estimated transfer semesters).  Jordan would be in the Priority 4 room selection.

3) Morgan came to NAU as a new freshman in fall 2014. Morgan was enrolled for fall 2014, but did not enroll for spring 2015. Morgan returned and enrolled for fall 2015 and spring 2016. At the beginning of Reapplication in April 2016, Morgan has had three NAU semesters (fall 2014, fall 2015 and spring 2016).  Morgan would be in the Priority 2 room selection.

4) Casey transferred to NAU in fall 2015 and brought in 59 transfer credits. At the beginning of Reapplication in April 2016, Casey has had two NAU semesters (fall 2015 and spring 2016) plus four “estimated transfer semesters” (59 divided by 15 = 3.93 which is then rounded to 4).  Therefore Casey’s total semesters of enrollment would equal six (2 NAU + 4 estimated transfer semesters). Casey would be in the Priority 3 room selection.

5) Dylan started a graduate program at NAU in fall 2015. As a graduate student, Dylan would be in the Priority 4 room selection.

6) Chris lived on campus during the fall 2015 semester and is studying abroad in Italy for the spring 2016 semester. Chris came to NAU as a new freshman in fall 2014. At the beginning of Reapplication in April 2016, Chris has had four NAU semesters (fall 2014, spring 2015, fall 2015 and spring 2016 counted for the study abroad). Chris would be in the Priority 2 room selection.  

Roommates

While submitting their online application students are able to use the Roommate Search/Selection step to search for potential roommates, request roommates, and accept/decline roommate requests. Roommate requests have to be accepted prior to being able to place them in a room with you.  

Roommates must also currently live on campus.  Off-campus students are not eligible for Reapplication.

During your designated room selection time, you will be able to select spaces for yourself and any accepted roommates. You will be able to place as many accepted roommates as will fill the available space in the unit – for example, invite up to three other students to live with you in a Pine Ridge Village apartment.  

You will only be able to pull-in and place your roommate at the time you initially select your room. If you select your room without placing your roommate at that time, you will NOT be able to add them to your previously-selected room at a later time. The roommate with the earliest room selection time should place other roommate(s) for the greatest space availability.   

Note: If you have an accepted roommate request, but do not place your roommate(s) at the time of room selection, your roommate(s) will not have an assignment. They will have to select their own room. If you do not plan to live with an accepted roommate anymore, please cancel your roommate request through the housing portal.

Cancellations

If you selected a room or were placed into a room by an accepted roommate prior to cancelling your application you will be charged a cancellation fee:

  • Cancel by May 15 - $500
  • Cancel May 16 - June 30 - $750
  • Cancel on or after July 1 - $1000
If you cancel your application without selecting a room, you will not be charged a cancellation fee.  
Note: cancelling your application is different than cancelling a room assignment.  If you cancel a room assignment and then select a new room, you will not be charged a cancellation fee.
