Congratulations on your acceptance to Nova Southeastern University! Come experience why NSU is THE University for you.

We are excited to have you as a part of the Shark community. It is our goal to assist students who have yet to confirm their admission at NSU.  Making the decision about where to attend college is all about fit.  We want to provide you an experience that will show you we are the right fit!   

We would like to invite you to campus for two fun filled days to experience what it’s like to be a Shark.  At Shark Preview you have the opportunity to interact with your academic school or college, and have questions answered by Undergraduate Admissions, Academic Advising, Residence Life and Housing, Financial Aid, and much more. You will also mingle with current student leaders and be able to attend one of signature campus events.  

Come take a bite of NSU at Shark Preview!
