Travel, Housing, and Parking Although the postprofessional programs are primarily online, students in both programs are required to attend on-campus sessions each semester for most classes in which they are enrolled. Students are required to arrange their own travel and housing based on the schedule provided by the program office. Contact the program office at (954) 262-1806 for information on nearby hotels. While on campus, students with cars should have a parking permit or a temporary pass that allows parking in any student area. NSU has a reliable, free on-campus shuttle system, and some of the nearby hotels offer free shuttle service as well. Travel to and from the airport is the responsibility of each student. Student ID Cards: The SharkCard NSU requires that students wear the NSU Shark Card (ID card) at all times. Students can complete an NSU Shark Card application (available online) and mail a passport-size photo to NSU Campus Card Services. Students can also obtain the shark card when they arrive on campus at the Shark Card Services Desk located in the Don Taft University Center (open Monday–Friday, 8:30 a.m.–6:00 p.m.) or at HPD in the One-Stop Shop located in the admission area on the first floor of the Terry Building. The Shark Card provides access to all buildings, libraries, and the fitness center located in the University Center. Each year, the NSU Shark Card provides students with $75 toward printing costs associated with printing at the computer labs on campus. On-Campus Institutes for Professional D.P.T. Students in Tampa All postprofessional courses are designed in distance learning formats. Each student holds the responsibility to fulfill all class requirements, access recommended resources, and meet the appropriate deadlines for assignment submission and exams. Students are required to access and participate in their web-based class as defined by the course instructor. Policies regarding participation on discussion boards are usually defined in the course syllabus. Attendance at the on-campus component for each class is mandatory. Students who do not attend the on-campus component will receive an incomplete for the class until the on-campus requirements have been met (in the subsequent semester in which the class is offered). Students can assume that all on-campus classes are scheduled from 9:00 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. unless otherwise indicated by the course instructor. Return flights should be scheduled no earlier than 6:00 p.m. on the last day of any course. Course instructors may assign an incomplete to students who do not complete a full day of scheduled on-campus classes.
