How to Apply

The Postbaccalaureate Pre-Medical Program attracts students who have not completed any college-level science courses and who have a strong academic record as well as some clinical experience. Because of the restricted availability of seats in U.S. medical schools, this program is open to U.S. citizens only.

Admission Requirements

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited four-year institution
  • A minimum 3.5 overall undergraduate GPA
  • GRE, ACT, or SAT scores
  • Application essay and interview

Tuition and Fees

Comprehensive tuition for students entering the Program during 2017 is $39,000. A non-refundable Enrollment Fee of $2,000 is due upon enrollment and is credited toward the Program fee of $39,000.

This is a one-time program fee, not a per-academic year fee, and covers the ten courses typically required for entrance to the health professions. All students may take additional courses on a per-course tuition basis for $3,900 per course. All other academic services of the Postbaccalaureate Program including workshops, a Health Care Seminar, assistance in finding internships, advising, and application support are also covered by this program fee.
