A proficient student is one who can research, think critically, and write at a professional level. Several tools are needed to reach this goal: resources, writing standard, and language helps.
Each NU student is expected to work through this non-credit Orientation prior to beginning study. If you do, you will save yourself time and frustration. If it becomes evident that you are not using these tools, your professor may stop your progress until you can demonstrate thorough familiarity with ONOS. There is nothing more important to us than to see you succeed!
ONOS can be found at the top of the Courses on the elearning.nationsu.edu homepage. Completing this course will set you on the path to success.
All students (except incarcerated 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. 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.
Incarcerated students should write to Prison Services and send all email inquiries to email@example.com. If a student has a question, he/she should first go to the Frequently Asked Questions page at 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.

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 or the Registrar.
