Our Mission

  • The Office of Student Success promotes a student-centered culture of individual success and academic persistence through collaborative and diverse initiatives.
  • The office provides mentorship to “Student Success Scholars” as they pursue their academic, social, personal, and professional goals.

Student Success Scholars Program

  • The Student Success Scholars is a pilot support program offered to Fall 2021 Full-time, First-time in College (FTIC) students who fit one or more of the following categories: (1) enrolled in preparatory courses at NSU, (2) standardized scores, and/or (3) advisor identification based on High School performance. This program was established to support student success in and out of the classroom with a focus on mentoring and reaching your goals at NSU.
  • A strong support system can make a big difference in how students navigate the changes and challenges the college experience brings and will be a factor in finding success at NSU.
  • Students will face unique experiences as they begin their exciting college journey, and we look forward to supporting our scholars and bringing this community together as Sharks.
  • Student Success Scholars will receive guided mentorship, access to exclusive events, and avenues to build their network at NSU.
  • The office hosts various events including “Tools for Success”, which is a series of workshops designed to assist students in adapting to university life and achieving overall success at NSU.
  • Purpose of this program is to establish a mentoring relationship that will provide our “Student Success Scholars” (mentees) with the opportunity to realize their academic, professional, and personal development goals while in college.
  • Our Razor’s Edge & Presidential Scholars Sophomores/Juniors will serve as our mentors to our “Student Success Scholars” and receive hands on training to support their mentees transition into college.
