Supporting dreams at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow


2023 has arrived here at Northeastern State University-Broken Arrow. The new year is the perfect opportunity to set personal, professional and educational goals and resolutions for what you would like to accomplish in the coming months.

NSU-Broken Arrow is here to help you accomplish your educational goals in 2023. We have dedicated staff members available in person, online or over the phone to help you get enrolled in the courses you need to get started and stay on track until graduation.

Both full semester 16-week courses and 8-week courses begin on Jan. 9 at NSU. Keep in mind that the second block of 8-week courses will begin on March 6, so you have more than one chance to pick up some classes this semester. With a variety of courses available in both in-person and online formats, you can start or continue your education in a way that makes sense for you and your life. Visit to learn more and apply.

Maybe one of your aspirations for the new year is to further your education by preparing to enter into a graduate program such as optometry, physician assistant or medical school.

NSU-Broken Arrow has the undergraduate majors and prerequisite courses you need to get there including chemistry, cell and molecular biology and more. To learn more about the all of the majors and minors offered at NSU-Broken Arrow, visit

Beginning this month, NSU-Broken Arrow will also be hosting a series of Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) prep courses through our Continuing Education program.

This MCAT Prep course is a unique opportunity for all students that are preparing to take the MCAT. The course is taught in person on the NSU-Broken Arrow campus by faculty from NSU, Rogers State University, Oral Roberts University and the University of Tulsa. The courses will be held on Saturdays from Jan. 14 to Feb. 25.

NSU is proud to collaborate with other universities in this effort to equip students who dream of becoming doctors and health care providers. Let us help you achieve your educational goals now so that you can achieve your professional goals in the future. To learn more about this MCAT prep opportunity, visit

NSU will celebrate Martin Luther King Day on Monday, Jan. 16. On this day, NSU offices will remain open but there will be no classes held. Students are encouraged to take part in some kind of volunteering opportunity during the day. It is an impactful time to see students investing in their local community in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. and his legacy. I hope you will take advantage of this opportunity to start 2023 with service and reflection.

I am also excited to invite area students to NSU’s Native Strong recruitment event happening on Jan. 20 on the Tahlequah campus. Native Strong is a hands-on experience for high school students to learn more about the NSU Native community and how to navigate the admissions, scholarships and Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application processes. To learn more about Native Strong and other recruitment events, visit

Even if you are not a current or prospective student, there is something for you going on at NSU. I invite faculty, staff and community members to frequently check our campus calendar for the most up-to-date information on events and activities happening on our campuses. Visit the calendar at

Exciting things are in store for NSU-Broken Arrow in 2023. Campus officials are constantly striving to better serve the surrounding community of Broken Arrow, and this year that goal is no different.

The university is working to increase resources for Spanish-speaking students and families, build community collaboration opportunities and most importantly, help more students complete their degree or certificate right here in Broken Arrow. I look forward to sharing campus news and updates with the community over the next year.

NSU is honored to help new year’s resolutions and goals be realized year after year through the power of higher education and we hope you will join on us campus sometime soon.

Wishing you a strong start to 2023,

Dan Mabery, Vice President of University Relations
