    HUIZENGA & NSU
    REAL BUSINESS LEADERS
    The H. Wayne Huizenga School of Business and Entrepreneurship at
    Nova Southeastern University is the only business school in the nation with
    entrepreneurship in its name. This speaks volumes about who we are – a dynamic
    business school committed to fostering innovative thinking in the workplace. At the
    Huizenga School, enterprising students learn to face the critical business issues of
    today and tomorrow, head-on.

    But no discussion about the Huizenga School would be complete without
    recognizing its namesake and benefactor, H. Wayne Huizenga. Architect of three
    Fortune 500 companies, Mr. Huizenga continues to exemplify the entrepreneurial
    spirit embodied in the Huizenga School’s innovative approach to business studies.
    Today Mr. Huizenga’s reputation continues to positively impact NSU, attracting
    high-profile speakers to the business school’s Distinguished Lecture Series.
    In 2003, the Huizenga School moved into its permanent home, the $37 million,
    state-of-the-art Carl DeSantis Building, thanks to the generous support of donors
    and the philanthropy of Mr. Huizenga.

    Today Nova Southeastern University is the largest independent university in the
    southeastern United States, with more than 26,000 students, 90,000 alumni,
    a sprawling 300-acre Fort Lauderdale campus and a presence in nine countries
    throughout the world. At NSU, it’s your future. So we do things on your terms,
    with classes offered days, nights, weekends and online. Class sizes are small, so
    you receive the kind of personal attention that makes all the difference in the real
    business world.

    BACHELOR’S ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
    Nova Southeastern University is committed to admitting individuals who are academically
    prepared to succeed in NSU’s challenging undergraduate program, who demonstrate the kind
    of dedication that will enrich the NSU community as a whole.
    Admission into a bachelor’s degree program requires that students have completed high school
    or received a General Equivalency Diploma (GED). Many factors are considered during the
    admission committee’s review process. Performance in high school will be the best indicator of
    how successful a student will be at NSU. The committee will review high school transcripts, as
    well as look at academic ability and strengths; the level of coursework taken; and performance
    on the SAT, ACT, or other standardized test. (Students interested in the evening, off-campus,
    or online programs do not need to submit SAT/ACT scores.) Involvement in activities and work
    experience will also be taken into consideration.
    NSU wants to make the application process as smooth as possible. Although personal
    interviews are not required, prospective students are encouraged to visit campus and meet with
    an admissions manager.

    Applicants with a secondary-level education from a foreign institution may be considered
    for admission with:

           greater on the written test, 213 or greater on the computer-based test, or

           the applicant’s prior institution(s) stating that the majority of the

     MASTER’S ADMISSION REQUIREMENTS
     Admission requirements for applicants wishing to matriculate in any master’s degree program offered at the Huizenga School are
     described below. The Huizenga School considers applicants on both quantitative and qualitative data. As a result, admission to the
     program is competitive, and regretfully, not all those who meet the quantitative standards below will be offered admission.
     Applicants are evaluated on the basis of demonstrated academic achievement as evidenced by their undergraduate GPA in the form
     of official undergraduate transcripts, official score on the Graduate Management Admission Test (GMAT), or official score on the
     Graduate Record Examination (GRE), if applicable.
     Acceptance may be granted for 45 days by submitting unofficial copies of college transcripts showing the degree conferred (official
     transcripts must be received within 45 days of acceptance) and/or the examinee copy of the score report from the GMAT, GRE,
     MELAB, or TOEFL if applicable (official score reports must be received within 45 days of acceptance). Students with acceptance
     based on unofficial documents may register for one term. Registration for future terms is contingent upon receipt and approval of the
     above official documents.
     Applicants with an undergraduate degree from a regionally accredited institution will be considered for admission with a GPA of 2.5
     or greater overall (or in the last 60 hours) on a 4.0 scale. Applicants whose undergraduate GPA is greater than or equal to a 2.25, but
     less than a 2.5 on a 4.0 scale must submit a GMAT score of 450 or greater or a GRE score of 1,000 or greater.
     Applicants with an undergraduate degree from a nonregionally accredited institution will be considered for admission with an
     undergraduate GPA of 2.5 or greater on a 4.0 scale. A GMAT score may be required at the discretion of the associate dean for
     academic affairs.

     PREREQUISITE COURSES
     Not everyone pursuing a master’s degree at the Huizenga School has an undergraduate degree in a business field. However, the
     master’s business degree programs require you to be prepared with knowledge in certain areas before taking the graduate-level
     course in that discipline.

     FINANCIAL AID
     The Office of Student Financial Assistance administers NSU’s financial aid programs, which include grants
     (undergraduate students), loans, scholarships, and student employment. The purpose of these programs is to
     provide financial assistance to qualified students, to help meet your educational objectives. In addition, financial
     aid counselors are available to assist you in planning the most efficient use of financial resources.

     NEED-BASED FINANCIAL AID
     Grants (except for the Florida Resident Access Grant (FRAG)), Federal Work-Study (FWS), and subsidized
     Stafford loans are awarded on the basis of financial need. Interest will not accrue for a subsidized Stafford loan
     before the repayment period or during deferment periods.

     NON-NEED-BASED FINANCIAL AID
     The unsubsidized Stafford loan is not awarded on the basis of need. Interest will accrue from the time the loan is
     disbursed until the loan is paid in full. The Graduate Plus Loan and private/alternate loans are available through
     lending institutions and private organizations (e.g., banks and credit unions).
                                                                                                                                  TRANSFER CREDIT
     Individuals interested in receiving federal financial aid must complete and submit the Free Application for Federal
     Student Aid (FAFSA). Students should complete the FAFSA online at www.fafsa.ed.gov. All undergraduate                        BACHELOR’S
