Northwestern State University has launched the myNSU mobile app for mobile devices that will allow students to access their student account, grades and transcripts.

The new app will also allow non-students to access maps, ballgames, news, social media and other features.

iPhone users can download the free app from the App Store by searching for myNSU Mobile. Android users can download from the Google Play Store by searching for myNSU. 

NSU's chief information officer Ron Wright said, "The mobile app pulls on the functionality that's already available in the website. This is the first generation to get things out there and get things moving."

The app features links to news articles, emergency numbers, maps, tours, Youtube, Flikr, Facebook, Twitter and Demon TV, which links to athletic streaming.

Wright said, "It has the capabilities to calibrate all that into one place. Students have the option to log in just like they do to myNSU.  They can do everything they can do through the big web interface, get a transcript, check holds on their account, check grades, look up classes and check their registration status."

The mobile app went live this week, just in time for student Move-In Day Saturday, Aug. 23 with New Student Convocation set for 5 p.m. Sunday, Aug. 24 and the first day of classes Monday, Aug. 25.
