Non-Traditional Freshman Admission

Non-Traditional Freshman are those who are 25 years or older and have never attended a college, university or post-secondary instituion after graduation from high school or receiving a GED or HiSET. 

(First time freshman who are under the age of 25 years old must meet first time freshman requirements.)

Non-traditional first time freshman ages 25 or older, must have a high school diploma or the equivalent to be admissible to NSU.  Effective Fall 2014, non-traditional first time freshmen cannot need ANY developmental courses to be admissable to NSU.  Official ACT, SAT or Compass scores are required to determine developmental need for an admission decision.

We will need your immunization records unless you were born before 1957 or are taking all classes online.

Please be advised if you have ever attended another college or university, either while in high school or after graduation from high school - you are required to disclose this information to NSU. Failure to disclose past attendance at any post-secondary institution can result in denial of admission and student disciplinary actions.
