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!)
All incoming HNU students take the ALEKS mathematics placement assessment. Results will help you and your academic advisor determine your preparedness in math and choose the most appropriate courses for you.
To register for the math placement test, please login to your Applicant Status Portal and click on Schedule Mathematics Placement Assessment.
In addition to math, HNU requires students to take the English assessment. Please follow the instructions and submit a short essay through our English assessment Canvas page.
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), visit https://hnuadvising.as.me.
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 2021 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 Ang Banez, Assistant Director of Housing & Residential Life Banez@hnu.edu
