All students are assigned an advisor to make sure they are able to proceed with their studies. Advisors are assigned to students based on their residence and/or language spoken. The advisor provides the personal contact to help students understand NationsUniversity requirements and procedures, develop effective study and exam habits, and understand NationsUniversity course materials. Additionally, advisors support and encourage students to continue in their studies. Students should expect to receive an encouraging letter or e-mail from their advisor several times throughout the year. Many advisors are former NU students who are familiar with NationsUniversity programs and procedures.
If a student has a question, he/she should first go to the Frequently Asked Questions page at www.nationsu.edu, then contact his/her advisor. NU offers no services toward job procurement, but is pleased to offer a letter of commendation, if requested.
Our goal is to help the student gain a deeper understanding of God and Scripture. However, courses are offered on a university-level. Students who struggle at this level are urged to give serious attention to the suggestions. This should enable students to pass exams on the first attempt. Begin study each day with these tools: a Bible, pen, outlined below.
Here are some Reading Strategies that may help.
Careful reading that results in higher level thinking makes the difference between success and failure. Good readers ouen use the following reading strategies.
A professor is assigned to each course. The extent of professorial involvement is regulated by the nature of the course and the needs of the students. Professors have already been involved in course design and syllabus construction. They may also be assigned to read your submissions. Because your advisor is most familiar with general study procedures, your first line of inquiry should go to him/her. The advisor can forward more advanced questions to the appropriate professor if you have not made contact with him/her through routine assignments.
NationsUniversity maintains a significant online library for students who wish to explore sources that are available through electronic media. Since prison inmates do not have access to the Internet, special arrangements are made to provide basic resource materials to incarcerated students.
It shall be the student’s responsibility to keep his contact information current. He/she may update personal information online or notify the Director of Student Services.
