The office includes the Office of International Students and Scholars (OISS), the Office of Education Abroad (OEA), and the Office of International Undergraduate Admissions (OIUGA). The OIA also provides ongoing assistance and support for all members of the university community engaged in campus internationalization, global partnerships and exchanges, and other globalization efforts. • OISS provides immigration, orientation, counseling, and overall assistance to all new and continuing international students, visiting scholars, and faculty members on and off campus. • OEA provides comprehensive assistance to those students (domestic and international) who want to travel overseas and experience an academic semester, a summer, or year abroad. • OIUGA provides comprehensive international student recruitment and admission support for prospective international students. The OIA is committed to welcoming international students, scholars, and their families while facilitating their transition to life at Nova Southeastern University. The team is also committed to providing domestic students with the services they need to fulfill their global and international interests though study abroad opportunities. Office of Orientation The Office of Orientation focuses on providing positive and smooth transitions into the university and college life for new NSU students. Orientation, a multiple-day program facilitated by student orientation leaders prior to the beginning of the fall term, supplies new students and their families with information and resources that provide a foundation for a successful start to the student’s academic pursuits. The office also provides an orientation for nursing students on the Fort Lauderdale/Davie Campus and the Fort Myers and Miami campuses. In addition, the office provides orientation programs for transfer and online students.
