Our Registration Process


NationsUniversity® students take courses at their own pace, therefore, students can enroll in NationsUniversity® at any time. NationsUniversity® is a year-round university and does not have “semesters” or “quarters.”


In order to begin your studies, you must first register with NationsUniversity®. Please read all the information below and carefully follow each step to complete your registration and formal admission.


Follow These Steps Carefully

1. Read the Academic Catalog for information on all of the NationsUniversity® programs, along with student policies. Click here to go to the NU Student Handbook and Catalog page.


2. Register by submitting your information through the link provided below.  Students will fill-out the User Registration page in English with information such as name, email, birthdate, country, etc. When you register, you are still welcome to choose a language of study other than English for non-credit / personal enrichment.


  • Unless you are an incarcerated student, you MUST have an email address in order to complete this registration page. Once you complete the NU registration, do not re-register. If you have a question during this process, please email, After registration, you are encouraged to begin your studies immediately and get to know your way around the NU website.

We suggest logging in to the system and changing your password to something easy for you to remember.

Note: If you do not receive an e-mail confirmation from us within two hours of submitting your registration, it could be because (1) your e-mail address is incorrect or (2) your spam filter caught the message. For more information, contact

Click the "Change password" button located at the bottom left of the page under “Settings”. Enter your current password, then the new password you have chosen. You must enter the new one twice.

You should contact your advisor when you have questions about your studies and make certain to include your username in the subject line of the email.


6. Submit credentials. If you are planning to study for a degree, you must submit official credentials before completion of the third course at NU. If you are registering to study for personal enrichment, entry credentials are not needed.


Please read Admissions before submitting entry credentials.


7. Receive formal Letter of Admission and Enrollment Agreement. For degree seeking students who have submitted credentialscredential processing may take three to six weeks and in the meantime students may be enjoying their studies. Once the official credentials have been reviewed by the Registrar, the student will be assigned to an appropriate certificate/qualifying/degree program and will receive notice of formal admission to NationsUniversity® by way of a Letter of Admission and an Enrollment Agreement to complete and return to the Registrar.

8. Continue your studies online. General Notes about NationsUniversity® Academics:


  • Active status continues for one calendar year from registration.  With each course completed, the registration period is automatically extended for one calendar year. It is to the student’s advantage to remain in active status.
  • NU students are expected to do their work online. This means courses will be accessed directly over the Internet and exams will be taken online.  Course syllabi can also be printed from a PDF file.
  • NU students are responsible for checking the website for announcements, news, and grade reports.
  • NU students are permitted to take any undergraduate course offered. Graduate courses are limited to those who hold a bachelor's (or equivalent) degree.  However, a prospective graduate student may take Foundations courses before being formally admitted to the graduate program.
  • Students work at different rates and completion time for each course will vary.  When one course is completed, the student proceeds to the next course in their program, which can be found on the user report. We strongly recommend, following this plan, one course at a time.
  • Students registering as part of an affiliated school or cluster will be subject to regulations governing the affiliation or cluster.
  • Students may withdraw from an academic program at any time. Students residing in the 25 listed countries see Cost page for the refund policy.

Student Privacy

Under the provisions of the federal law known as the Family Education Rights and Privacy Act of 1974 (FERPA), eligible students, or where applicable, the parents of the students, are afforded certain rights pertaining to university records and personally identifiable information on file with the institution. An eligible student is defined as any person who is currently enrolled or has been enrolled in the institution’s programs. It is the policy of the institution to treat all student information, both personal and academic, as strictly confidential. Student information will only be released after appropriate written permission has been obtained.
Student records are maintained and viewed only by authorized NationsUniversity personnel. Under no circumstance is student information divulged to the general public without the student’s consent. Students are not permitted to view other student’s personal information. Student data are maintained electronically and/or in hard copy and protected from unauthorized access.
NationsUniversity further protects students from the possibility of arrest and harassment when they live in a country inclined to take action against citizens who engage in unauthorized religious study. In such countries, postal contact is limited or curtailed. Persons assigned to communicate with these students are trained to deal with the delicate situation.
Students can request to have their names withheld from public view in the online list of graduates.  Student names, personal testimonies, and pictures are published only with a student’s written (e-mail or post) consent.
