NOVA Southeastern University

Daemen College has signed an articulation agreement with NOVA Southeastern University in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida.


The agreement is structured around a 4+4 program for qualified students earning a Bachelor of Science degree in biology or biochemistry.  Up to five students per year graduating from Daemen who stay within a specified grade point average and meet other program requirements will be guaranteed positions in the NOVA Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine.


NOVA Southeastern University is the nation’s seventh largest, not-for-profit independent institution of higher education, with more than 127,000 alumni and more than 29,000 students enrolled in classes.  NOVA offers a diverse array of innovative academic programs, complementing on-campus educational opportunities and resources with accessible distance learning programs fostering academic excellence, intellectual inquiry, leadership, research, and commitment to community.  NOVA Southeastern and Daemen share a service-oriented approach to higher education, through the engagement of students and faculty in a dynamic, lifelong learning environment.


Our health care programs, and theirs, are focused on assisting those individuals and populations who live in under-served areas. Osteopathic medicine offers a distinctly holistic approach to health care. The NOVA Southeastern University College of Osteopathic Medicine is distinguished by an emphasis on primary care and a tradition of caring for patients in underserved rural and urban areas. The training of vitally needed family physicians, and the drive to reach rural, minority, geriatric and indigent populations, are unique focuses of the NOVA Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) program.


Daemen students who are accepted as undergraduates in the 4+4 program will also have opportunities to participate and travel with NOVA Southeastern students and faculty on health care missions around the world. Recent NOVA Southeastern missions have included Vietnam and the Dominican Republic.
