Currently enrolled NSU students who are interested in one of the following dual admission programs but did not gain admission as an incoming freshman, may apply for consideration only after their first year at NSU if they meet the criteria listed below:
Strong interest to attend graduate/professional school at NSU in the selected domain, as demonstrated by completed coursework and experiences.
*Calculation of cumulative GPA for the purpose of program eligibility will not reflect the "grade forgiveness" policy, all grades for retaken courses will be included.
If you have met these stringent requirements during your freshman year, you are eligible to apply for admission into these dual admission programs after your first year at NSU. Please note that students who enter one of the Dual Admission programs through DAPES that require a 3.2 minimum GPA for DAPES consideration, may not be eligible to request a change at a later date to another Dual Admission program that requires a 3.5 minimum GPA for DAPES consideration. Selected students will have a seat reserved in one of these NSU professional/graduate programs contingent on continued successful completion of the undergraduate degree program (specific performance requirements must be met) and appropriate test scores.
All application materials, including letters of recommendation, will be due on September 15, 2023 (the application will open on September 1, 2023). You will be required to write a letter of intent and provide three letters of recommendation, 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. Please note that the minimum GPA requirements are firm, and only students who meet all posted requirements will be considered for admission.
