At Nova Southeastern University, we recognize the challenges students, families and educators have experienced and continue to face due to hurricanes and flooding. As families and schools are working toward recovery, we want to support students and educators during the admissions application process who have been affected by these disasters.First, NSU will be flexible on application priority dates should you need additional time to complete and submit your application for admission and all supporting documents, such as transcripts and test scores. You may receive priority date reminders from us, but please know that we will work with you on an individual basis to accommodate your situation.Second, NSU will not require the guidance counselor recommendation or any other letter of recommendation, should it be difficult for an affected student to obtain it. Students should feel free to submit recommendations, but if unable to do so, the Admissions Committee will proceed with application review and the student will receive equitable consideration.Third, if paying the application fee poses a significant financial hardship, an affected student may contact the NSU Office of Undergraduate Admissions to request a fee waiver.
