Academic Catalog 2023-2024

Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program

This intensive one-year program is designed for highly motivated individuals with excellent academic records, who have earned a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited four-year institution, but lack most or all of the prerequisite science courses needed for admission to medical school. The nine courses (36 credits) required for the Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program allows students to complete in 12 months the necessary science foundation to achieve strong MCAT scores and fulfill the course requirements for medical school admission. The Health Professions Advisory Committee works with post bacc students throughout the duration of the program and subsequent medical school application process.

Precalculus is a prerequisite course for the program and should be taken prior to enrollment.


It is recommended that students take Calculus prior to applying for medical school. This course could be completed following the Post-baccalaureate Premedical Program. In exceptional circumstances, or as a substitute course for students who have already completed one or more of the program requirements, it could be taken during the program.


It is highly recommended that students take a social science course if they have not had one in more than five years.
