All students must submit legible copies, in English, with their full name and NSHE ID number (the ID number listed on your acceptance letter). These documents must be submitted to the Office of the Registrar.
Students under age 18 must have a parent's signature on the immunization exemption forms or a parent/guardian with them to receive the immunizations.
