Additional Support

In order to provide better options and services for students, Roberts Wesleyan University and Northeastern Seminary have changed the bookstore vendor to Slingshot. Slingshot is an EdTech company that provides all necessary course materials for each program. New seminary students are defaulted to rent physical and digital textbooks. To opt out or make different textbook selections, follow the steps below. After registering for classes, textbooks will be automatically shipped or emailed to new students if no action is taken.
You will want to log in to your Student Slingshot account by using your RWU/NES email address credentials to access your account (the same username and password you use to access your email, Moodle course sites, and Self-Service).
Student Login - Find Your School: type Roberts and do a search:
Click on the Roberts logo. It will redirect you to the Roberts Wesleyan University Campus Store. Click on the LOGIN button (top right corner) to access your account.

Select My Account Preferences (orange button)
The Default Preference is Rent, however, you have five options to choose from: 
  1. Rent
  2. Buy Used
  3. Buy New
  4. Digital
  5. Opt-Out
If you choose options 1 to 4, you will be billed for books from your student account and a box of books (or digital upload) will be sent to you automatically, based on the courses you are registered for. 
    5. Opt-Out - If you do not want to be enrolled in this program, you must OPT-OUT immediately to avoid having books shipped to you automatically.  If you Opt-Out, you are free to purchase your books from any place (Half BooksAlibris, AmazonChristian Book Distributors) you choose, but you will need to pay for your books on your own and not through your student account.

The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) of 1974, as amended extends the right of access to certain records maintained by Roberts Wesleyan College (RWC) and Northeastern Seminary (NES) to all former and presently enrolled students. Students are notified of their FERPA rights in the NES Catalog.

UPDATES to FERPA regulations:

As of January 3, 2012, the U.S. Department of Education’s FERPA regulations expand the circumstances under which your education records and personally identifiable information (PII) contained in such records- including your Social Security Number, grades, or other private information- may be accessed without your consent. First, the U.S. Comptroller General, the U.S. Attorney General, the U.S. Secretary of Education, or state and local education authorities (“Federal and State Authorities”) may allow access to your records and PII without your consent to any third party designated by a Federal or State Authority to evaluate a federal- or state-supported education program. The evaluation may relate to any program that is “principally engaged in the provision of education,” such as early childhood education and job training, as well as any program that is administered by an education agency or institution. Second, Federal and State Authorities may allow access to your education records and PII without your consent to researchers performing certain types of studies, in certain cases even when we object to or do not request such research. Federal and State Authorities much obtain certain use-restriction and data security promises from the entities that they authorize to receive your PII, but the Authorities need not maintain direct control over such entities. In addition, in connection with Statewide Longitudinal Data Systems, State Authorities may collect, compile, permanently retain, and share without your consent PII from your education records, and they may track your participation in education and other programs by linking such PII to other personal information about you that they obtain from other Federal or State data sources, including workforce development, unemployment insurance, child welfare, juvenile justice, military service, and migrant student records systems.

This is a place where people are supported and celebrated — where they invest in each other."

The foundation of the seminary is its people, the heart and soul of what goes on
Northeastern is a safe place to come and be who you are — the people were actually being the face of Jesus."

This is a place where we began to realize that we need to take off our sandals."
