If you know your career plans require graduate or professional school, why wait until you’re done with undergrad to plan for the future? With Nova Southeastern University’s Dual Admission program, you’re reserved a seat in one of NSU’s graduate or professional programs while you complete your bachelor’s degree.

The Dual Admission program was pioneered for a select group of highly motivated students who have known their career path from an early age. If this sounds like you, be sure to apply early at the start of your high school senior year to prepare and meet all necessary deadlines.

Dual admission is the biggest blessing. Having NSU there—knowing they want me in their medical school—is the best comfort any pre-med student could have.
