All application materials, including letters of recommendation, will be due on September 15th.  You will be required to write a letter of intent and provide three letters of recommendations, two from current NSU undergraduate faculty (for health professions, from whom you have taken at least one science lab class) and one from a licensed professional in your chosen field (for health professions, a physician or other licensed health care professional).  All letters of recommendation must include email and phone contact information, for verification purposes.
