PLAN YOUR FUTURE. THEN DOMINATE IT.

Nova Southeastern University gives you a competitive advantage in your career, your community and your life. If you want to gain this kind of edge, you need a plan. That’s why at NSU, you’ll have an academic adviser and access to all the resources our Undergraduate Academic Advising Center has to offer.

I love going to career services. Their resume and interview advice helped prepare me for the real world.

Make Your College Experience Count

Plan your future and stay the course.

Taking the right classes at the right time is essential to successfully completing your degree on time. By meeting with your dedicated academic adviser every semester, you can work together to plan your schedule and make sure all your courses are in order. 

Your academic adviser can help you narrow down what you want to do if you’re not quite sure what your major should be. They can also help you maximize your degree by exploring minors, double majors and double minors that you could earn.

Have a Goal for Each Year of Undergrad

Connect with new opportunities along the way.

You don’t have to know exactly what you want to do right when you get to NSU. Discovering what you’re truly passionate about is part of what your first year in college is for! Here’s how we recommend students approach each year.

Advisors are Everywhere

Faculty, staff and even grad students give great advice.

The best part about going to a school with small classes is that your professors really get to know you. They learn your strengths and your career goals. Then they provide advice and opportunities to help you exceed those goals. NSU faculty are more than teachers—they’re industry experts, ground-breaking researchers and caring mentors who have your future in mind.

Working with grad students and faculty is really helpful. We get a head start on our master's and make some great friendships, too.
