Master's and Educational Specialist

Students beginning coursework at the graduate level are required to take the Orientation program (EDU 5000). This seminar provides an orientation to the program and technology skills necessary for successful participation in the M.S. and Ed.S. programs of the College of Education.

Students will be introduced to university systems designed to provide support and services during the formal program of studies, i.e., academic advising, course materials and schedules, the portfolio process, Educator Accomplished Practices, etc. Students will also practice technology skills, i.e., using email, sending attachments, navigating the Internet to locate university Web sources, accessing library materials through the NSU Electronic Resources, using APA form and style, locating and using program Web sites, and using the online course management system. The seminar also provides students an opportunity to meet with an Academic Advisor/Enrollment Services Representative. Attendance in this non-credit seminar is required for all entering M.S. and Ed.S. students. Students need to complete EDU 5000 during the same session of the first graduate course in the program of study.

To ensure that students have the tools and information they need after Orientation, we have also developed an FCE Program Success Guide. You can access it (and download it for future reference) by clicking on the on "FCE Program Success Guide" tab below.

NSU has simplified the registration process by allowing students to register for classes online through WebSTAR. Students should contact the Office of Student Services to request additional assistance to add, drop, or withdraw from class. In addition, questions regarding registration schedules, WebSTAR access, registration holds, class schedules and locations, prerequisite requirements, and special needs can be addressed with the OSS.
