Program Details & How to Apply

Dual degree students must make regular application for admission to, and be accepted by, both the College of Law and the secondary degree program. Consult with the admissions office for your graduate program before initiating the application process. In most cases, you can apply to both programs at the same time or apply to the other graduate program during your first year of law school. Make sure to review all requirements from both programs.

Things to Note:

  • J.D. admission always requires a recent LSAT score; some of the other degree programs may use the LSAT in lieu of their normally required admission test.
  • NSU Law will award 9 to 12 credits, depending upon the dual degree program, as elective credit towards the J.D.
  • The number of credits awarded by the other degree for J.D. coursework varies. ABA standards do not permit awarding of J.D. credit from other degree programs if the credits were earned prior to matriculation in the J.D. program.
  • The J.D. program is considered your primary program and the other graduate program is your secondary program.
