Academic Policy Details

Pre-Med, Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Veterinary

Programs in the natural sciences provide preparation for students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, dentistry, veterinary medicine and other health-related fields. Although entrance requirements may vary from school to school and from one health-related field to another, there are three general requirements requested by most professional schools which enhance the strength of a student's application: 1) a science-related degree with coursework in biology, chemistry, and mathematics; 2) a strong background in the liberal arts; 3) involvement in relevant and appropriate professional and volunteer activities. A strong score on the professional school entrance examination (such as the Medical College Admissions Test) is important for entry into most professional or graduate schools.


These policies apply to the Semester Program/On Campus students only.  Graduate College Students will need to consult the Graduate College Bulletin.
