Academics (including prerequisites)

All health professions programs are academically competitive. Schools do not prefer a particular undergraduate major so you can choose any major and be eligible to apply as long as you complete the entrance requirements. Academically, most schools require specific prerequisite courses and a minimum GPA. Each health profession school has different entrance requirements so it is the student’s responsibility to check with each professional school in order to determine specific pre-requisites courses and equivalencies for each institution. Most programs require a minimum of a 3.0 cumulative GPA to apply, and we encourage students to maintain at least a 3.5 cumulative GPA to be competitive. Check with each institution and program for a more accurate understanding of GPA guidelines.
