Yes. As Access Plus is a highly personalized program, an in-person, on-campus interview is required. Through this interview, students and families can tour NSU and learn about the academic programs offered on campus. Most importantly, the interview will help determine if this is the right program for the student.

Applicants have to meet NSU’s admission requirements as determined by the program of application.

An admissions team for Access Pluswill review each student application to make decisions about which students will have a high likelihood of being successful at NSU through the Access Plus program.
