(NSU, or the university) is a not-for-profit, private institution and is exempt from federal income taxes on related income under Section 501(a) of the Internal Revenue Code as an organization described in Section 501(c)(3). Founded in 1964, the university offers undergraduate degrees, graduate and firstprofessional degrees, and certificate programs to more than 20,000 full-time and part-time students in a wide range of fields, including the humanities, biological and environmental sciences, business, counseling, computer and information sciences, conflict resolution, education, family therapy, medicine, dentistry, various other health professions, law, marine science, performing and visual arts, psychology, and other social sciences. Courses are taught at 4 South Florida campuses; 8 regional campus locations, including Puerto Rico; and at sites in 6 states, as well as 3 foreign countries. NSU serves the residents of its community with health, psychology, and law centers; services for children with hearing impairments and autism; and programs for retired professionals. NSU University School offers innovative alternatives in primary and secondary education to children from preschool through grade 12. 2. Summary of Significant Accounting Policies Financial Statement Presentation The accompanying consolidated financial statements include the university and its wholly owned subsidiaries, NSU Guaranty Insurance Company, Ltd.; NSU Grande Oaks, LLC; NSU Park Plaza, LLC; NSU Health, LLC; and The Pointe Corporate Office Park Property Owners Association, Inc. The latter two legal entities have no financial activity to date. All significant intercompany balances and transactions have been eliminated in consolidation. NSU classifies its transactions and balances into two categories of net assets according to the absence or existence of donor-imposed restrictions: (1) net assets without donor restrictions and (2) net assets with donor restrictions. Net assets without donor restrictions include transactions and balances without donor-imposed stipulations and may be used to achieve any institutional purpose; however, the Board of Trustees may designate net assets without donor restrictions for a specific purpose. Net assets with donor restrictions include transactions and balances with donor-imposed stipulations that normally expire in time, or can be fulfilled by actions of the university. However, certain donor restrictions are perpetual as they neither expire over time, nor can be fulfilled by actions of the university, requiring the related net assets to be permanently retained. Such permanently retained net assets are included within the net assets with donor restrictions category. The consolidated financial statements include prior-year comparative information summarized in total, but not by net asset class. As this summarized information lacks sufficient detail for presentation in accordance with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America, the data should be read in conjunction with the prior year’s consolidated financial statements. Certain amounts contained in the accompanying fiscal 2021 consolidated financial statements have been reclassified to conform to the fiscal 2022 presentation. The preparation of consolidated financial statements in conformity with accounting principles generally accepted in the United States of America requires NSU to make estimates and assumptions about the reported amounts of assets and liabilities, the disclosure of contingent assets and liabilities at the date of the financial statements, and the reported amounts of revenues and expenses during the reporting period. Actual results could differ from these estimates. Cash and Cash Equivalents Cash equivalents are investments with maturities of 90 days or less when purchased and are carried at cost, which approximates fair value. Restricted Cash Current restricted cash represents funds related to federal revolving student loan programs (see Note 10) and funds held on behalf of student clubs or organizations in which the university is serving in an agent capacity. 16
