We're excited that you will soon be joining the HNU community! Below you will find helpful information to make transferring 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 spot at HNU 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!
If you haven’t already, have official transcripts from ALL colleges and universities you attended sent directly to:
Holy Names University
Office of Undergraduate Admission
3500 Mountain Boulevard
Oakland, CA 94619
You may want to request your transcripts through Parchment, Inc., a credential request company that can assist you in sending electronic transcripts and other credentials directly to Holy Names University from other colleges and universities.
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. The assessment must be completed at least 2 weeks before your scheduled Hawk Day. Sign-ups for the ALEKS mathematics placement assessment are included in the Hawk Day registration form (linked below).
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 (in-person or over the phone), 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.
All students (first-year and transfer) planning to live on campus must complete a housing application; included will be your meal plan contract. To secure your room make sure to submit your housing deposit.
Transfer students living off-campus have the option to choose a meal plan only. To select a meal plan only, please contact Justin Vacca, Director of Housing and Residence Life, at email@example.com.
