Next Steps to Enrollment
Once you’ve been admitted to NAU as a Flagstaff freshman
Complete the checklist below to reserve your space in our freshman class.

- Spring: The enrollment deposit is $250 and is refundable until December 1.
- Fall: The enrollment deposit is $250 and is refundable until May 1.
2. Apply for Housing and Complete Priority Enrollment
- Please allow for 1 business day for payment processing of your enrollment deposit before applying for housing. Room selection is based on the dates you complete both your housing application and Priority Enrollment
- The housing application will open at the end of September. We encourage you to apply for housing as soon as you have paid your enrollment deposit, since housing is available on a first-come, first-served basis.
- Nearly 90 percent of first-year students live on campus, and for good reason. Living on campus isn’t just convenient, it sets you up for success by putting you in the center of everything you need.
- Complete your academic profile in Priority Enrollment. Participate in new student advising to finalize your schedule.
- If you have accepted your offer of admission, you will be able to register for an orientation experience. You can choose to come to an in-person orientation session or engage with NAU virtually throughout the summer. In-person orientation is not required, but strongly encouraged. We are excited for you to join the Lumberjack Family!
