NSU HPD Catalog 2021-2022

NSU Health Professions Division 9 Indebtedness to the University NSU offers to all students—on campus, online, clinical, or hybrid—the same quality education and many opportunities for student benefits depending on the student’s choice of educational modality. Therefore, the university sets the overall student fees on an aggregate, student-centric basis for the entire student body. The overall costs exceed the amount collected from student fees charged to all students. These student fees are blended together to create 1NSU with high-tech systems, student activities, andmany other essential student services that make a complete, integrated university. This mission transcends the development and ultimate determination of the amount of student fees for all students, irrespective of their choice of learning modality. By registering for courses at Nova Southeastern University, the student accepts financial responsibility for payment of all institutional costs including, but not limited to, tuition, fees, housing, health insurance, and meal plan (if applicable), and any additional costs when those charges become due. Payment is due in full at the time of registration. NSU eBills are sent the middle of each month to the student’s NSU email address. However, to avoid late charges, students should not wait for their billing statement to pay their tuition and fees. A student will not be able to register for future semesters until all outstanding balances from previous semesters have been paid in full. If a student has a balance 30 days after the start of the semester, a hold and a $100 late fee will be placed on his or her account. This hold stops all student services, including, but not limited to, access to the NSU RecPlex, academic credentials, grades, and future registrations. It will remain on the student’s account until the balance has been paid in full. Delinquent student account balances may be reported to a credit bureau and referred to collection agencies or litigated. Students with delinquent accounts will be liable for any costs associated with the collection of unpaid charges, including attorney fees and court costs. All registration agreements shall be construed in accordance with Florida law, and any lawsuit to collect unpaid fees may be brought in the appropriate court sitting in Broward County, Florida, regardless of the student’s domicile. Force Majeure NSU’s duties and obligations to the student shall be suspended immediately, without notice, during all periods that the university is closed or ceases or curtails operations because of force majeure events including, but not limited to, any fire or any casualty, flood, earthquake, lightning, explosion, strikes, lockouts, prolonged shortage of energy supplies, riots or civil commotion, act(s) of God, hurricane, war, governmental action, act(s) of terrorism, epidemic, pandemic, or any other event beyond the university’s control. If such an event occurs, NSU’s duties and obligations to the student will be postponed until such time as the school, in its sole discretion, may safely reopen or resume operations. Under no circumstances, except as otherwise required by Federal or State statute, will NSU be obligated to refund any portion of tuition, housing, meal plans, fees, or any other cost or charge attributable to any location or service affected by any such force majeure event. Admissions Policy Students provisionally are admitted to a degree-seeking program based on a review of unofficial transcripts or other specific program admission requirements. However, this admission includes a condition that final and official transcripts, documents, and requirements must be received within 90 calendar days from matriculation for the graduate and professional programs and by the end of the drop/add period for undergraduate programs. If these final and official transcripts, documents, and/or requirements are not received by that time, the student will not be allowed to continue class attendance. Financial aid will not be disbursed to a provisional/conditional student until he or she has been fully admitted as a regular student (all admissions requirements have been approved by the college/program admissions office). Students who have an unpaid balance 30 days from the start of the term will be assessed a $100 fee.
