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, unless the transferred college credits were earned through advanced high school programs such as AP, IB, or college academy – or in summer coursework following high school graduation, prior to attending NSU.  Please contact your admissions representative for more details regarding this requirement.     

Students who enter NSU with earned college credits through advanced high school programs may be able to complete their degree and program requirements earlier than scheduled and request to enter their graduate professional programs earlier as well. 


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.  The science GPA for dual admission purposes is only composed of all courses with BIOL, CHEM, and PHYS prefixes.

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.

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