  2. File the FAFSA
    If you haven't already, submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) as soon as possible and be sure to list Seton Hall’s federal school code (002632).

  3. Submit your Official Transcripts
    Submit all official transcripts for all college-level credit you have earned to the Office of Admissions. We will evaluate your transfer credits and provide you with an advanced standing credit evaluation via mail. We will accept up to 90 transferable credits (non-remedial, non-vocational credits) for which you have earned a C or better. If you earned a B or better in a science course from an accredited 4-year institution, you will receive credit for the equivalent Seton Hall course. All other science courses will transfer in as general elective credit, provided they meet the general credit transfer criteria.

    Send official transcripts to:

  4. Access PirateNet
    PirateNet is Seton Hall’s online portal and your access to your financial aid, bills, registration and more. To access the portal, visit PirateNet.shu.edu. After you submit your deposit, we will email your username and password.

  5. Meet with Your Adviser
    Meet with an academic adviser to evaluate your advanced standing credit evaluation and receive help with course selection and registration for the coming semester. Contact your academic adviser, Felella (Di) Millman, at (973) 275-2118.

  6. Get your Student ID
    Get your Student ID card and parking permit. Visit the Campus ID Office in Duffy Hall, Room 63, to get both your ID and permit.

  7. Submit your Health Form
    Complete and mail your Health Form to Health Services.

  8. Submit your Health Insurance Waiver
    Seton Hall automatically provides a group health insurance plan which is charged to your bill. If you already have health insurance and do not want the Seton Hall plan, you must complete the insurance waiver form on PirateNet before the start of classes to avoid automatic enrollment in the Seton Hall plan and a non-refundable charge to your bill. The waiver will be available after May 1.

  9. Accept Your Financial Aid Awards
    Financial Aid Awards are mailed in late November to all students who filed the FAFSA. If you would like to be considered for aid, please complete the FAFSA form as soon as possible at www.fafsa.gov. Students who have received their Financial Aid Awards need to review and accept their awards. Visit the Seton Hall Financial Aid website for more information on Financial Aid.

    To accept your awards follow these steps:
    • Login at PirateNet.shu.edu. Your login information will be emailed to you in March if you have paid your tuition deposit.
    • View your Financial Aid award. You must select the award year (2014-15) then click on the Award Overview tab.
    • Accept your awards by clicking on the Accept Award Offer tab and accept or decline each award.
    • View your requirements. Some students are selected for a process called verification by the government. If you are selected, you will have additional documents to submit such as federal tax returns or proof of citizenship. You must return these documents to the Office of Financial Aid.
    • Complete entrance counseling and your Master Promissory Note at www.studentloans.gov if you accepted your Federal Stafford Subsidized or Unsubsidized Loans.
    • Many departments on campus seek students to work in their departments by posting positions in the student employment database. To view and apply for jobs visit jobs.shu.edu. You must also submit your Employment Eligibility Verification (I-9) form and original supporting documents. Submit these forms to the Office of Financial Aid.
    • Apply for the Federal PLUS loan or Alternative Loans. To apply for the PLUS Loan visit www.studentloans.gov. Please note you must also have a FAFSA on file to apply. We suggest you start applying in early June. If you'd like to choose an alternative loan visit www.elmselect.com.
    • Submit your first payment by November 1 if you are enrolling in the payment plan option. If you are interested in signing up for a payment plan, please visit tuitionpay.salliemae.com.

  10. Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act
    You and your parents should be aware that for students 18 years or older there are federal regulations that limit the ability of parents to access information about their child’s records once he/she enrolls at Seton Hall. These regulations are called FERPA (Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act). This law means that parents do not have the right to view their child’s grades, transcripts, bill or financial aid, or any other educational records without the student's consent. Parents also do not have the right to call and inquire about their child’s status or activities without this written consent. We encourage you to discuss this with your parents in advance to determine if you will complete a consent form. If you wish to grant such consent to your parents, an authorization for access to student information form must be completed and on file at the University.

  11. Pay Your Bill
    RN to BSN students pay the per credit tuition rate. All invoices are sent electronically to your student SHU e-mail address and can be viewed at PirateNet.shu.edu. The first electronic invoice is due December 22.

    We offer both four and five month payment plan options through Sallie Mae. Payments are due in equal installments beginning November 1 (five month) and December 10 (four month). If you are interested in signing up for a payment plan, please visit tuitionpay.salliemae.com. Please note there is a service fee of $35 per term.

    If you have questions about Financial Aid, payment options or your bill, please contact the Student Financial Services Help Desk at 1-800-222-7183.
