Announcing a new business innovation academy (and scholarship)

NSU is looking to invest in future entrepreneurs with new business ideas for the newest Premier Programs offering, the Huizenga Business Innovation Academy . A ’3+1′ combined bachelor’s and MBA program, students earn an annual $18,000 scholarship, and graduates will be awarded a $20,000 investment stipend to launch their own business. Immersive by design, students will develop a business plan and launch their own business on campus, coupled with business internship opportunities.



Are your students interested in Dual Admission, Razor’s Edge Scholars, Farquhar Honors College, The Fischler Academy, or Huizenga Business Innovation Academy? Encourage them to submit the Premier Program Application to be considered for one or more of these programs. They will be required to come to a Shark Preview weekend for an on-campus interview as part of the selection.

B.S. in Human Nutrition now offered in college of medicine

In addition to Public Health, students now have the option to study Human Nutrition in the Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine. This distinct advantage to earn an undergraduate degree from a college of medicine at NSU is the edge students need in today’s competitive job market.

This also establishes NSU’s Dual Admission program as the first in the nation to offer an accelerated, seven-year academic path from the B.S. in Human Nutrition to the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.) degree.

NSU is now one of only three in the U.S. with two medical colleges. Both medical colleges bear the name of university benefactor, Dr. Kiran C. Patel – the only person in the nation to have two medical schools named in his honor.

It’s not surprising that having dedicated faculty mentors for students leads to overall greater academic achievement, career development, and well-being. Because of One Course At A Time, Cornellians always have a faculty or staff mentor who, over the course of 18 days, is able to get to know, support, and guide each of their students.

News from Illinois Institute of Technology

Candidate Profile for Full-Tuition Scholarships

Eligible first-year applicants for the fall 2019 semester must apply by December 1 to be considered for full-tuition scholarships, some of which require additional materials. Full-tuition candidates will have diverse academic interests, strong leadership potential, a commitment to community service, and outstanding academic ability with a trend of A’s in rigorous coursework and ACT/SAT scores in the top 10 percent nationally. In the end, we’re on the lookout for positive character traits and unique work, such as volunteer or research experience, that make these applicants stand out from the rest. Please note than any student nominated for a full-tuition scholarship must attend our Scholarship Symposium event to interview in person; there are no exceptions to this rule.


Special Program Deadlines December–April

Dual admission programs are designed for exceptional students to pursue early acceptance to professional degrees in osteopathic medicine, pharmacy, dentistry, and law. All programs require supplemental applications by specific deadlines separate from general admission to Illinois Tech.

Professor Research Highlight: Chris White and Bryce Littlejohn

Professors Chris White and Bryce Littlejohn in the Physics department are part of the Precision Reactor Oscillation and Spectrum Experiment (PROSPECT), which was awarded $3 million by the U.S. Department of Energy to search for sterile neutrinos. The novel antineutrino detector will probe the possible existence of a new form of matter and is now collecting data at Oak Ridge National Laboratory.

Advising Students on Course Selection

It’s not too early for high school freshman and sophomores to be thinking about course selection for college application purposes. We recommend that students take courses each year that relate to their intended majors. Students who hope to pursue a STEM major should take at least pre-calculus and above, physics, biology, and chemistry, and ideally at the honors, AP, or IB level. We encourage students to take relevant electives to expose them to their majors, such as AP computer science or psychology, AutoCAD, engineering classes, and statistics, for example. High school students taking courses at the college level may be awarded credit upon enrolling at Illinois Tech.
