Are you a parent of a middle-school or high-school student?

Maybe you are a faculty or staff member who wants to better understand the undergraduate enrollment process or wants to get involved in recruitment!

If you answered “yes” to any of the above, please join us for a series of workshops presented by our own experts and geared toward informing NIU faculty and staff about the stages of undergraduate recruitment including marketing, admissions, financial aid and scholarships, housing, and orientation.
