All first year students (and transfer students with fewer than 15 credits) will take a first year seminar as part of their academic course load. This three-credit required seminar offers students an opportunity to study an interesting and engaging topic with one of Salem State University’s outstanding faculty members.
We highly recommend you attend a first year seminar information session prior to making your seminar selection.
After you have registered for an orientation session, you will be directed to the first year seminar selection process in your Navigator account. Students should choose a first year seminar as soon as possible.
Once you have paid your enrollment deposit, you can access your SSU email and your navigator account. Access your Salem State email through Outlook in Office 365. Login and use the same username and password as your Navigator account.
Email is the official method of communication at Salem State, therefore you are expected to check your account regularly.
Salem State University offers many ways for students and families to pay for their education. Most people begin by applying for financial aid and confirming their award letter. If financial aid does not cover the entire cost of attending, the university has other options to help students pay their bill.
