All students seeking admission to this program must formally apply to the Admissions and Academic Standards Committee in the College through the Program Director. Applications must be accompanied by official transcripts of all college work (with evaluations from the University Registrar) and two letters of recommendation from previous teachers, advisors, or workplace supervisors. All applicants must have met ASSET responsibility and have a GPA of 2.50 or better on a 4.00 scale in mathematics, biology, chemistry, and physics before entering the Program. Students must have acceptance prior to enrollment in professional courses.
Advanced standing within the Health Sciences is the administrative placement of a student in a specific health program based on program requirements and the applicant’s completion of previous credits. Program applicants who qualify for advanced standing receive an administratively approved, individually prepared degree plan that recognizes previously earned college credits and professional credentials.
