Welcome New Graduate Students

Congratulations and welcome to the College of Engineering and Computing Family! We understand that the decision to continue your education is a big step, and we are delighted that you chose Nova Southeastern University. Please use this checklist to help you with your first steps to becoming a Shark!


New Graduate Student Checklist

Retrieve your Sharklink username and password –  Sharklink is your “passport” to access important campus resources and tools (e.g. NSU email, Webstar, registration, and financial aid). If you require further assistance logging into Sharklink contact the NSU Help Desk at (954)262-4357. https://www.nova.edu/sbin/nsulookup/ac/sharklook

Check your NSU Email – Due to FERPA privacy restrictions, all NSU email communication must be conducted through your NSU student email account. Please setup your NSU email account by logging into Sharklink - click on the email icon - then follow on screen commands. http://www.nova.edu/help/live/how-to.html

Register - You must register for your classes through Sharklink.  All students must sign the SEA Agreement when registering for classes. For scheduling information, please visit our Current Students Page. Please note that if you are required to take 500-level foundation courses, they can be substituted with undergraduate courses. Please consult with your academic advisor for more information. 

Apply for a NSU Parking Decal –  Annual parking decals are required in order to park on NSU campuses. http://www.nova.edu/publicsafety/forms/parking_permit_application.pdf
