A personal interview is a part of the admission process; however, being interviewed is not a guarantee of admission. Not all applicants will be granted an interview. Those selected for an interview will receive an invitation by the Office of Admissions to schedule the date and time of such interview .

Notice of Acceptance

Notice of acceptance or action by the Committee on Admissions will be on a "rolling" or periodic schedule; therefore, early completion of the application is in the best interest of the student. Students may check on the status of their application online through the NSU WebSTAR online application system.


After acceptance, final official transcripts, covering all of the applicant's course work with degrees, must be forwarded to the Office of Admissions prior to matriculation. It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that arrangements are made for these transcripts to be sent.
