Getting Started

Getting Started

It is a simple process to begin your studies with us.

  • Registration is only open a few weeks before course modules begin. You can review our course module start dates through our Course Module Schedule webpage.
  • Complete the one page online application and click "submit".
  • Within a few business days, you will be sent your username, password, and registration instructions.
  • After you have received your username and password email, follow the Registration and Payment tutorial to register for your course module(s).
  • You may take COS course modules in any order you wish.  However, if you would like some guidance, please see the suggestions below.
    • If you have never taken courses online, it is wise to register for only one course module. After you are comfortable with the online learning platform, you may choose to take more than one course module in a semester.
    • In selecting your course module(s) you may want to consult the Course Module Sequence page. Here you will find a suggested order for completing your NNU COS course modules. For example, you would complete Group 1 before moving to Group 2 and so on. Note the special instructions for the At-Large course modules.
    • When you have determined which course module(s) you wish to complete, proceed to the NNU Portal using the username and password emailed to you and follow the Registration and Payment tutorial.
    • If you need assistance, please contact Stacey Bullard, Course of Study Program Coordinator at sbullard@nnu.edu or (208)467-8046.
