Next Steps - Accepted First-Year Students
We're really excited that you will be joining the HNU community! Below you will find helpful information to make your journey to HNU as smooth as possible. Also, be sure to watch your mail and email for more details. See you soon!
Submit your $100 enrollment deposit through your Holy Names application portal as soon as you decide to attend HNU. Your enrollment deposit secures your place in the entering class and opens the door to your participation in Hawk Day, our early registration program.
Submitting either your FAFSA (Free Application for Federal Student Aid) or California Dream Act Application helps us determine your eligibility for grants, scholarships, and additional financial aid. We can’t issue a financial aid award letter until you file your application. (So get it in as soon as you can!)
Transfer students who have not taken and passed the required math and science courses for their major, may be required to take the Aleks math placement.

If you believe you have taken the required math and science courses for your major and believe the Aleks placement should be waived, please contact your enrollment counselor.
Transfer students who have not already passed an equivalent English course will be required to take a writing placement. The writing placement and information on how to complete it can be found on your admissions portal. There you will be able to see if the writing placement has been waived.

All incoming students must meet with an academic advisor after completing the ALEKS placement assessment and before attending a Hawk Day. To schedule your appointment (over Zoom), login to your Applicant Status Portal.
During a Hawk Day, you’ll connect with fellow incoming students, explore ways to get involved at HNU and learn more about the resources and people that are here to support you along the way. Please note that there are several requirements that must be completed prior to attending a Hawk Day. RSVP for Hawk Day.
All students planning to live on-campus must complete a housing application.
Spring 2023 residence hall update: In the ongoing interest of health and safety, the residence halls will continue to be single-occupancy during the spring semester. Students who opted not to live on campus in the fall may apply for the limited number of rooms available.
Transfer students living off-campus have the option to choose a meal plan only. To select a meal plan only, please contact Destany Charles, Director of Housing & Residential Life firstname.lastname@example.org
