We believe that being here will help you picture what an incredible learning and growing experience you could have as part of our community. But if you get here and find it isn't a perfect fit for you, that's okay too. At least you're one step closer to finding a college that will be!

Key Things

to know

Admissions & COVID-19

NNU’s campus is closed to visitors until further notice. Like you, we’re disappointed we are not able to welcome prospective students and their families to campus right now.
In the meantime, we are still here to answer your questions about campus visits, admissions procedures, how to connect with people on campus, and anything else you may be wondering. You can connect with your Admissions Counselor through email, phone, video chat, or text.

See the FAQs

 

WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW BEFORE YOU VISIT

When is the best time to come to campus?

 

You should definitely come during the academic year when you can see and experience the robust NNU community in action!

 

What should I bring on my campus visit?

 

If you are staying overnight in the dorms, please plan to bring a sleeping bag, pillow, towels, and necessary toiletries. If you are coming for a day visit, plan to wear comfortable clothes and shoes for walking around campus. Idaho's weather can change quickly in the course of an hour or two, so layered clothing works best.

 

Where can I park on campus during my visit? Do I need a parking permit?

 

Guests may park in any of the parking lots or streets on campus. Examine a campus map for exact locations. Parking is free and there is no need to obtain a guest pass.

 

Can parents participate in the visit events?

 

Yes! Parents are welcome to attend any and all visit events/activities.  In fact, we encourage you to participate! The process of visiting college campuses is as important for parents as it is for students. At NNU, we invite students and parents to talk about what they want to do together and what they prefer to do separately during the campus visit. One student may love having dad along throughout the entire day, but another student may prefer to visit campus by herself. Ultimately, we want both student and parent to feel comfortable with the environment in which they choose to spend the next few years of their life because these years are pivotal in the shaping and developing of each student's world view and values. Overnight dorm housing is not available for parents.  Parents can stay in the Alumni House, if available, or contact our Campus Visit Coordinator at 208-467-8472 for local hotel recommendations.

 

What is the closest airport to NNU?

 

Boise International Airport is approximately 30 minutes from campus and accepts flights from most major airlines.

 

Does NNU provide transportation to and from the airport?

 

Yes, airport transportation is available! Before purchasing your tickets, please contact our Campus Visit Coordinator to confirm that a shuttle will be available on the date of your flight(s). NNU's shuttles operate between the hours of 8 am - 5 pm (Monday-Friday).

 

TRAVEL REIMBURSEMENT

You + us + travel reimbursement ...Is there anything better? (We don’t think so )


At NNU we understand that traveling to visit colleges can be expensive, which is why we want to help you get here.

 

Here's how it works:

 

1. Schedule an official campus visit through the Office of Admissions.
2. Send us a copy of your travel receipt.
3. Visit campus and receive your reimbursement.

 

  • We will reimburse the cost of your plane ticket up to $250
  • Recruited NCAA athletes are not eligible for this program
  • This reimbursement is only for the cost of the student's ticket & may only be applied to one visit during your high school years
  • This must be an official campus visit event coordinated through the Office of Admissions
  • NNU will reimburse any public transportation such as commercial planes, trains or buses, but will not cover the cost of fuel for cars or any use of personal mileage

 

Now all you have to do is book your flight to come see us! We can’t wait to have you here.
For more information about NNU’s travel reimbursement, contact our visit coordinator at 208.467.8472 or visit@nnu.edu.
