Transfer students are not eligible to apply to the Health and Medical Professions dual admission programs. Only students coming to NSU in the fall semester as freshmen first time in college applicants are eligible to apply.  

Please be advised that a student's initial course placement in mathematics, science or composition may impact the timing of the completion of all dual admission prerequisites and major courses, and could result in the need to take summer courses.

Calculation of cumulative and science GPA for the purpose of program eligibility for dual admission will not reflect the "grade forgiveness/repeated courses" policy, all grades for retaken courses will be included.

Final determination of admission into the professional program is at the discretion of the receiving college.
