No, you can force a default shell without modifications.
Check out login.conf(5) and shell variable.

However, the original post implies little FreeBSD experience.
Why do you want to automate such a procedure?
You said it's going to be for a networking class, that is a limited
a number of users, right?

sdf is a public access Unix system and has to do this automatically,
you don't have to. smj@sdf.lonestar is a seasoned administrator,
who has tampered the OS in a number of ways.

Just my 2 cents, Nikos
