Students interested in these dual degree programs should always consult with the admissions office for the 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 study. J.D. admission always requires a recent LSAT score; some of the other degree program may use the LSAT in lieu of their normally required admission test. In each case, it is essential that you ascertain all requirements from both programs. Candidates for dual degrees begin their studies in Shepard Broad College of Law and start the other program in the second year. NSU College of Law will award 9 to 12 credits, depending upon the particular 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. For this reason, it is advised that candidates not begin study in the other degree program first.
