Catch the SEA Wave

Q:  How do I complete the Student Enrollment Agreement (SEA)?

A:  Online Registration

You will be prompted to complete the form as part of your registration process in SharkLink/WebSTAR once registration for your program has opened.

To complete the SEA, follow the steps below:

Manual Registration (with the program office or by submitting a Student Transaction Form)

Once registration is open, you may log in to SharkLink/WebSTAR and select Registration and Add/Drop Classes to read and complete the SEA.

Please note that the SEA form will not be accessible before registration has opened.

Q:  What’s the purpose of the Student Enrollment Agreement (SEA)?

A:  The Student Enrollment Agreement (SEA) states many of the university's policies regarding course registration and students' financial responsibilities. The SEA promotes transparency and ensures that students are knowledgeable about the implications of registering for courses and dropping and/or adding courses.

Q:  What’s the best time to complete the SEA?

A:  The SEA becomes available online when registration for your program opens.

Q:  Do I have to complete a SEA each time I register?

A:  SEAs need to be completed once every semester.

Q:  What if I don’t complete a SEA?

A:  Students must agree to comply with the standards and policies outlined in the SEA in order to register for courses.  Any manual registration will be cancelled unless a SEA is completed.

Q:  I registered with my academic advisor and did not complete a SEA. What do I do?

A:  Once registration is open, students may log in to SharkLink/WebSTAR and select Registration and Add/Drop Classes to read and complete the SEA. You will also receive a message from the Office of the University Registrar to your NSU email prompting you to complete the SEA. If you do not complete the SEA, your registration will be cancelled.

Q:  I was notified by email that my registration will be cancelled. What do I do?

A:  Students who registered manually, either with their program office or by submitting a Student Transaction Form, and who have not yet completed a SEA will receive an email message from the Office of the University Registrar prompting them to complete the SEA within 5 days. Failure to do so will result in cancellation of all classes for any terms without a SEA. To prevent cancellation of your registration, you must complete the SEA within the designated time period.

Q:  I didn’t complete the SEA in time, and my registration was cancelled. Can my original registration be reinstated after I complete the SEA?

A:  After completion of the SEA, you may attempt to reregister, however, your original registration cannot be reinstated, and all classes may no longer be available.

Q:  What if I still have questions?

A:  Please call the Office of the University Registrar at (954) 262-7200.
