We’re glad you decided to explore the Pace University/NACTEL program a little further. Following is a step-by-step guide to take you through the application process.

Step One: Before You Apply

Before you apply, gather your materials. This will help you complete the application more quickly and efficiently. You should also take this time to review and become familiar with your company’s tuition assistance policy.

Step Two: Apply

Complete the AS/BS application or the MS application online.

Step Three: Take (or Bypass) the Assessment

Once you submit your application, you will be assigned a UserID and password. Your UserID and password will be displayed on screen as well as sent to you via e-mail. Please save your UserID and password to a safe place. Both the e-mail and onscreen display will provide instructions on the assessment. You may choose whether you’d like to take the math assessment or bypass it. You DO NOT have to take the assessment in order to be enrolled in the NACTEL program.

Your UserID and password will also give you access to the Student Information Center where you can view scores from the assessment, update prior learning information, make changes to your contact information, access forms to request your transcripts, add or drop courses, get a summary of your registration, and keep track of what you’ve taken and when.

Step Four: Request Your Official Transcripts

You should begin by requesting official high school, GED, or college transcripts. You can request your transcripts by using the transcript request form found in the Student Information Center. Please have your transcripts sent to:

Dr. Bernice Houle, Assistant Dean
Seidenberg School of Computer Science & Information Systems
Pace University
861 Bedford Rd.
Pleasantville, NY 10570

A transcript is only considered official if it is received in an envelope SEALED by the school. When requesting an official transcript, it is wise to have one sent to you as well. Do NOT open this transcript. If we do not receive your transcript, then you can send us the one you have.

We ask for your official transcripts so that you can become a matriculated student in the NACTEL program. Becoming matriculated means that you have joined the NACTEL program as a degree seeking student. Only matriculated students may apply for federal student aid.

Step Five: Arrange for Payment Prior to Registration

Pace University MUST receive payment or a letter of credit either directly from you prior to the start of your first semester. Once you have registered online, you will receive a registration summary which provides the costs for the semester. If you would like to review the costs prior to registration, please visit our tuition and fees page. There are a few ways that you can pay:

    Tuition Remission: Please contact your tuition assistance provider directly for information on tuition assistance coverage and application procedure. If you need more information on the Tuition Assistance policies of your company, please complete the Tuition Information Request Form. Please fax or email your letter of credits and/or tuition vouchers to the NACTEL office, making sure to provide your signature if needed.

    Student Loans: If your company’s policy does not cover the full cost of tuition, you might wish to apply for Federal Student Aid. To learn more about this aid and/or apply go to the following website Please note, you MUST be a matriculated student in the NACTEL program to qualify for financial aid, therefore it is imperative you get your transcripts sent to Pace as soon as possible. Please notify the NACTEL billing coordinator ( so she can facilitate this process. The financial aid code for Pace University – Pleasantville Campus is 002792.

    Check: If you are paying by check and getting reimbursed by your company, please make checks payable to Pace University and send them with a copy of your bill (invoice) to:

    Office of Student Assistance
    Attn: Brenda Smith

    Pleasantville, NY 10570

    Please note the semester for which you are paying and “NACTEL” in the memo section. We recommend that if wish to track your payment you use FedEx or UPS as registered or certified mail through USPS tends to delay delivery.

    Credit Card: If paying by credit card, you may fax your payment to:

    Office of Student Assistance
    Attn: Brenda Smith
    (914) 989-8645

    Credit card payment must be made in full. Please indicate that the payment is for the NACTEL program and include your name, name of the credit card holder EXACTLY as it appears on the card, semester, amount of payment, credit card number, expiration date, three digit security number located on the back of the credit card, and card holder’s signature.

Step Six: Get Advised and Register

When your Advisor has received the completed application and assessments, your information will be reviewed. You will then be sent an e-mail indicating which classes you should register for. Remember that you are not officially accepted into the program until your official transcripts are received. You are considered a non-matriculated student and can take up to 24 credits until you must matriculate.

As soon as you register, you may purchase your books, which we encourage you to do right away. Simply visit the online bookstore and indicate which courses you are taking.
