Qualified undergraduate students will earn their bachelor of science degree (either from their original undergraduate institution or from NUHS) and a doctor of chiropractic degree (DC) or doctor of naturopathic degree (ND) from National University of Health Sciences in less time, and for less cost than earning the degrees separately.
As an Advanced Scholar, you'll complete your BS and DC or ND degrees in less time, saving you a year of tuition and expenses. The length of most chiropractic and naturopathic degree programs is five academic years. However, DC and ND students at NUHS enroll in classes year-round and may receive their degrees in 3.5 years. This means that without the Advanced Scholars Program, finishing a BS and DC or ND degree would typically take a minimum of 7.5 years. Since you'll only be spending 3 years in undergraduate studies, and your first year at NUHS will count toward both your BS and DC or ND degree, you'll have a chance to finish both degrees in 6.5 years.
National University is working to expand the Advanced Scholar Program to additional schools to bring this opportunity to a larger number of exceptional students. However, we select only institutions that have programs rigorous enough to prepare students to enter graduate study after their initial three years.
