What's Next?

We're beyond thrilled that you're joining our community! You've done a lot of work to get to this point, but there are still a few ducks to get in a row before you move in.

Next Steps

Starting immediately, people on our campus (professors, advisors, classmates, administration, etc.) will be contacting you with important information through your MVNU account, so start checking it regularly. (Instructions can be found on the "Access Student Email" tab at

No matter what year you'll graduate from MVNU, there's a Facebook community for you to connect with and talk textbooks, class schedules, campus events, clubs, and more — just search for "MVNU Class of 2022" (or the year you'll graduate from MVNU).

Your class schedule won't be finalized until we receive your official transcripts from high school and college, so call your high school and/or college Monday and request they be sent to us. Remember, even though College Credit Plus or Post-Secondary Enrollment Options classes may appear on your high school transcript, official transcripts must come directly from the college to MVNU in order for you to receive credit.

In August, you'll need to register your vehicle (motorcycles included) at Your MVNU Portal username and password will be required. The decal for your vehicle will be available when you arrive in the fall. Bicycles must be registered in the Campus Safety office as well. Modes of transportation that don't need to be registered: skateboards, scooters, rollerblades, teleportation devices, hot air balloons, feet.

You have until August 8 to avoid a $50 late fee by completing your payment arrangements to cover your balance. Go to for instructions.

Email your name and cell phone number to to receive text messages in the event of a campus emergency.

Review the list of things to bring and things NOT to bring. Think: TVs, toiletries, tapestries, yes; fire hazards and things that go BOOM, not so much.

New residential students move in on the 1st. ALL new students (including freshmen, transfer, and full-time CCP) are required to attend NSI.

Pull out your phone and plug this into your calendar real quick so you don't forget! Plus, the academic calendar is available at by using your MVNU login credentials.
