Selective Admissions

A committee selects applicants to the program each year. Students with complete applications are notified of their status within three weeks after the program's deadline date.

Selections are based on the student's accumulative grade point average plus bonus points earned. Bonus points can be awarded based on the following criteria:

  • Completion of degree-specific general education courses prior to applying, with a C or higher. Science courses must have been completed within 5 years of program deadline date.
  • Completion of college level courses from a regionally accredited college or university, with a C or higher. Points are awarded proportionately to the number of semester hours completed.
  • Bachelor's Degree

Before You Apply

  • You must complete BIOL 2401 (Anatomy and Physiology I), BIOL 2402 (Anatomy and Physiology II), BIOL 2420 (Microbiology) and CHEM 1406 (Essentials of General & Biologic Chemistry) with a C or higher.  Five years after a course has been completed it is no longer valid.
  • The College admissions process must be complete before you can apply to the program.
