After watching current events locally and around the globe, Nova Southeastern University President George L. Hanbury II, Ph.D. has announced that all spring and summer 2020 classes will unfortunately NOT take place on NSU campus. Due to this announcement, Dean Elaine Wallace, Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine, has made the difficult decision that we are unable to hold AIM-High camp this summer.

We understand the disappointment which comes with this decision, and faculty and staff are currently working on an alternative on-line version. While it will not be the same, at least it will be a taste of AIM-High to tide you over until we can meet in person during the summer of 2021.

AIM-High Application Deadlines (full application must be submitted)

  • Early Admission - Extended until March 6, 2020.  Decisions to be issued within the month of March.
