  • Double check your enrollment in classes. Check Banner for changes in meeting times, places, etc.Print a copy of your schedule.
  •  Resignation Fee-once University classes begin, all students resigning from the University will be assessed a $150.00 resignation processing fee.
  • Dropping and Adding Classes
    • No refund will be given for a dropped class after 4:15 pm on the last business day before the first day of class.  Adding classes after this date may increase indebtedness.

  • If you still need to take any placement tests, be sure to contact the Academic Testing Center in 212 Elkins Hall or call 985.493.2599 or 985.448.4462 to schedule.
  • Make plans to attend to attend a Freshman Advising Seminar. Freshman Advising Seminars are offered to first-time, entering freshmen to help them in the transition to college.  These seminars are designed to pick up where orientation left off and give students valuable information covering a broad range of topics that are relevant to them as they prepare for their first semester at Nicholls. Please call 985.448.4117 to sign up for a Freshman Advising Seminar.
