Parents and Family

Welcome to NSU!

Thank you for supporting your student’s decision to attend the Nova Southeastern University. We are excited for all of our new NSU Sharks to get started on this next step in their journey. As freshman head off to college, parents and family members continue to play an important role in their student’s development and education. We encourage you to join us for a Parent Orientation Session to learn more about NSU, and the ways you can support your student in his or her transition to NSU.

Parent Orientation Session

An optional 1-day parent and family orientation program is offered alongside our First Year Orientation Sessions every summer. This session is designed specifically for parents of new students at NSU, and will answer any questions you have about your student’s transition into the university. To learn more, visit the Freshman Orientation website.  

Academic Calendar

Plan your student’s next trip home during one of our university approved holidays or breaks! See our academic calendars for official term start and end dates, as well as university holidays and special events.
