Children

There is no minimum age requirement for NEXUS. However, if you are under the age of 18, you must have your parent or legal guardian’s consent to participate in the program. Your parent or legal guardian does not have to be a NEXUS member.

Regardless of your age, you must create a Global Online Enrollment System account, pay a $100 non-refundable application fee, and schedule an interview at a NEXUS Enrollment Center. If you are under the age of 18, a parent or legal guardian must be present at time of interview.
