CHCS Student Handbook 2018-2019

Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook 1 Welcome to Nova Southeastern University and congratulations on becoming a proud Shark! At NSU, you join more than 21,000 students who make up our dynamic university. Founded in 1964, NSU’s vision, mission, and core values reflect our deep-seated commitment to enhance learning opportunities for you—our students—throughout Florida and the United States, as well as in 109 countries. We offer a multitude of academic opportunities for you, but also remain committed to giving each of you individualized attention. Our small class sizes and online education options provide tremendous access to our gifted faculty members, and I urge you to tap into the minds of these leaders in their fields. For the complete college experience, I hope you will also explore our diverse programs, clubs, organizations, and internship opportunities available to complement your learning in the classroom. Please take advantage of these resources and opportunities. Your experience at NSU is what you make of it, and I am confident you will make it a good one. With your membership to the university community comes many rights and responsibilities. This student handbook outlines these rights and responsibilities, university policies and procedures, and university resources. Before you know it, you’ll be nearing your degree completion, and I look forward to congratulating you and welcoming you into our alumni network of more than 177,000 graduates in all 50 states and in more than 100 countries around the world. Enjoy your time at NSU, and go Sharks! George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. President and Chief Executive Officer Message from the President
