Transferring to NSU

U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) allows international students to transfer between institutions of higher education approved by Student and Exchange Visitor Information System (SEVIS).

Should you wish to Transfer In to NSU before or after completion of your program of study (or Optional Practical Training), you are required to transfer your SEVIS record electronically by the Designated School Official at your current institution to the Office of International Students and Scholars at Nova Southeastern University, before you may begin your studies at NSU.
