NKU Hosts Fall Open Registration


August 13, 2019— Northern Kentucky University will host an open registration session for fall semester on August 15. The event offers prospective students an opportunity to complete necessary enrollment steps before the first day of classes on August 19.

Students receive one-on-one assistance to help navigate the enrollment process. Advisors will help them start or complete their NKU application, confirm acceptance to the university and explore financial aid and housing options. They will also receive a free NKU T-shirt.

“We know summers get busy. Students aren’t thinking about fall classes until now, but the good news is that it’s not too late. With open registration, you can finish your application and schedule your fall classes immediately,” said Melissa Gorbandt, director of Undergraduate Admissions. “Once you’ve completed your application, stop by the Victorfest events and celebrate with the fellow Norse.”

  • What: Open Registration 
  • When: Thursday, August 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
