Nova Southeastern University Student Handbook 63 Enrollment Management and Student Affairs (EMSA) The Division of Enrollment Management and Student Affairs is composed of five key pillars of operational functions and services to our student population. The five pillars are Undergraduate Admissions, Graduate Admissions, Financial Aid and Academic Record, Central Student Support, and Student Affairs. The following offices provide current students with numerous services and cocurricular learning opportunities that are conducive to student growth, development, and engagement that leads to retention and graduation. Center for Academic and Professional Success The Center for Academic and Professional Success (CAPS) provides career consulting and job search assistance to undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni. Through consulting and careerrelated resources, the center strives to educate students and alumni on how to develop an individualized career action plan, from choosing a major to conducting a competitive job search. The center also strives to help students and alumni explore career and/or graduate/professional school opportunities. Additional programs and services available include on- and off-campus employment opportunities, career assessments, internship and experiential learning opportunities, job fairs, career-related speakers, and soft-skills development. In addition, CAPS provides comprehensive undergraduate academic support services that assist students in achieving their academic goals. These services include academic planning, course sequencing and prerequisites, academic preparation for graduate and professional schools, and class registration. Center for Student Counseling and Well-Being The Center for Student Counseling and Well-Being (CSCW) offers student counseling services to the student body of NSU to help students maximize their best self academically, personally, and professionally. NSU’s clinical partner is Henderson Behavioral Health, a leader in behavioral health care providing comprehensive, recovery-focused services and is accredited at the highest level for student counseling services by the Commission on the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF). Services provided at the CSCW range from stress management and coping strategies to psychiatric assessment and crisis intervention. The center provides the student with an assessment, counseling, consultation, psychiatric services, wellness and recovery education, and when needed, case management services and linkage or referral. In addition, the CSCW provides various outreach programs and support groups on such topics as stress management, transitions to college and grad school, as well as coping with oneself and others. Individual, couples, family, and group counseling that utilizes a brief therapy model is provided in a welcoming office environment. The option for telehealth services is also an option when appropriate. Services are scheduled based upon the identified needs and service options chosen by the student. The counselor’s goal is to build upon the student’s current skill sets for positive behavioral change. Services are provided by licensed counselors, licensed psychologist, and a psychiatrist. Full- and part-time enrolled students are eligible for 10 counseling sessions per academic year at no cost. Psychiatric services are available and are covered by many commercial insurance plans, or for a nominal fee. Daily appointments available for new students.
