Undergraduate New Student Orientation


This program is designed to assist you in making a smooth transition to university life at NSU! Orientation is the foundation of your college experience.

All new undergraduate students at NSU are REQUIRED to attend orientation. 

For this reason, we offer several types of orientation programs to assist with the transition to NSU, whether you are coming from high school, another college, or the workforce.

For the past months, NSU has worked tirelessly to look at every facet of student life and determine how we make fall semester both safe and meaningful. Orientation is a mandatory event for all freshmen and first-time-in-college students attending Nova Southeastern University. We cannot wait to welcome you to campus and kick off the fall semester!
