Fall Course Offerings

The fall term is broken down into two sessions.  Session 1 is 12 weeks in length.  Session 2 is four weeks in length.  A standard full-time load consists of two courses in session 1 and one course in session 2.  Standard full time status requires at least two courses per term.  The Halmos College of Natural Sciences and Oceanography program office reserves the right to cancel a course due to low registration.  If canceled the students will have a choice of switching to a different course or receiving a full refund.

New Institutional Policies

STUDENT ENROLLMENT AGREEMENT FORM

Starting this summer, ALL students will be required to complete a Student Enrollment Agreement (SEA) form in order to register for classes. The SEA requires students to agree with NSU standards and policies regarding course registration and withdrawal, financial responsibility, a release of liability, and more. Students registering for courses will be prompted to complete the form as part of the registration process on Sharklink and WebStar.

To complete the SEA, follow the steps below once registration has opened:

AGAIN ALL Students must complete the SEA or course registration will not occur.
 
For more information, please see the Registrar's FAQs.

NEW ONLINE STUDENT TRANSACTION FORM FOR NSU EMPLOYEES

Any employees who need to register may now utilize an online Student Transaction Form instead of submitting a paper form to the program office.  These forms are received by the Registrar's office and are processed faster than the paper forms.

Access the form here.

Capstone, Thesis, Ph.D. Directed Study, and Dissertation Credits

MS students wishing to register for Capstone or Thesis Credits must have had their proposal accepted by the Oceanographic Center Program Office.    A student who has not had their proposal approved by the program office may have to register for a Directed Independent Study and must contact the Program Office for the Course Reference Number (CRN) associated with their major advisor.

Once a proposal has been approved by the Director, MS students sequentially register for and complete credits in each succeeding terms until the capstone/thesis is complete and has been successfully defended.  If a student fails to register for any given term without written approval by the Associate Dean, that student will be withdrawn from the program.

PhD students register for directed studies if their proposal has not been approved.

To select the correct CRN, please choose your major and track.  Then select your major advisor.
