The Ron and Kathy Assaf College of Nursing participates in the centralized applications service called NursingCAS. NursingCAS is used for document verification but does not take part in the student selection.

  • Request all official transcripts from all previously attended institutions to be sent directly to NursingCAS.

NursingCAS
P.O. Box 9201 
Watertown, Massachusetts, 02471

Coursework taken at foreign institutions must be evaluated for U.S. institutional equivalence by an approved National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES) organization such as one of the services listed below.

It is the applicant's responsibility to have this coursework evaluated. An official course-by-course evaluation with a cumulative grade point average must be sent directly from the evaluation service.

  • Once the NursingCAS application is completed, an applicant needs to complete the supplemental 

    NSU Application online

  • Once all applications and documents have been received the application will be processed and reviewed.

The deadline to complete and submit the NursingCAS and supplemental NSU applications for Fall admission will be August 1st and for Winter admission the deadline is December 1st. The Office of Admissions works on a rolling basis. Applications are accepted year-round.
