New Student Information

On behalf of the Center for Academic and Professional Success, we would like to congratulate you on your acceptance to Nova Southeastern University! Our school strives to provide every student a competitive edge for their future careers. In order to ensure your successful transition to your undergraduate studies, please carefully follow the instructions below.

1. Complete Admissions Process

In order to be sure that your NSU student record is up-to-date, you'll work with your Admissions Counselor to ensure that you've submitted all necessary test scores and transcripts to NSU. 

Have you submitted your Enrollment Deposit yet? If not, do so here:

Not sure if you've completed the admissions process yet? Contact your Admissions Counselor for clarification.


2. Complete the New Student Information Session

This online course, that you can complete at your own pace, will walk you through important information that you'll need to take your next steps as a new Shark! Once you've completed it, you'll be able to schedule your meeting with your Registration Facilitator, who will help you get registered for your first semester at NSU!


You can find the CAPS New Student Information Session in two places:

1. Your NSU email inbox - you should have an email from Canvas (that's the learning management system we use at NSU) inviting you to the New Student Information Session 2021-2022 - click the link in that email

2. Go directly to Canvas and look for New Student Information Session 2021-2022

              - You'll see invitation to accept appear at the top of your screen when you log in if it's your first time accessing the                         Info Session

              - You'll see the Info Session in your list of Courses

If you don't see New Student Information Session 2021-2022 in Canvas:

Please be advised that deposits take 24-48 hours to process. You will be automatically enrolled in the CAPS New Student Information Session in Canvas within 48 hours of paying your deposit. If it has been more than 48 hours since you've paid your deposit, or you have other questions about your admissions status, please contact your Admissions Counselor.


3. Schedule an Appointment

After you have completed the New Student Information Session, you'll be able to schedule an appointment with a Registration Facilitator. Your Registration Facilitator will be working with you until Winter 2022 semester begins. Their role is to help you smoothly transition in to being a Shark and ensure you're registered for the right courses in your first Winter Semester.

Directions to schedule your New Student Appointment with your Registration Facilitator are contained in the CAPS New Student Information Session, so once you've completed that online course, you'll be able to contact us to schedule your first appointment!
