There Are Perks to Being a Shark

As a graduate of Nova Southeastern University, you have a free, lifetime membership to the Alumni Association and all the benefits and discounted services that come with it.

The NSU Alumni Association partners with different organizations to give you discounted rates and memberships for things like insurance, fitness, museums, and more.

 

On-Campus Benefits and Discounts

Even after you graduate, you still have access to these on-campus NSU facilities. Take advantage of special, discounted memberships and enjoy NSU’s state-of-the-art fitness center, research library, art museum, and learning institute.

Members of the NSU Alumni Association enjoy free access to select research databases offered by the NSU Alvin Sherman Library.

How do I register for the Research Database access?

Update your record and check the box for “Have access to select research databases.” Once your record is verified by the NSU Alumni Association, please allow 7-10 business days to obtain access. Requests are uploaded into the library system each week. You will receive a notification when your account is accessible from the NSU Alumni Association to the email you provided in your record update.

How do I obtain a library card?

Broward County alumni can obtain a library card with proof of residency.

All other alumni can receive a library card by presenting their NSU Alumni Association (NSUAA) membership card, which you receive after you graduate in your NSUAA welcome packet. If you do not have a membership card, please contact the NSU Alumni Association at (877) 478-0576 or email us at alumni@nova.edu.
