Description


The following lists are courses that are required for pre-professional programs and are designed to help students complete necessary prerequisites that are requested by professional school programs.  Though these programs are meant as a guide, each professional school may have slightly different requirements for admission.  Students should consult a pre-professional advisor to plan out their path appropriately as coursework is only one component of admission to professional schools.  Most of these programs include coursework that may be overlapped with one’s major or minor requirements as well as coursework from the Core Curriculum.  A student’s academic advisor will be able to identify where these overlapping requirements may exist.

Academic Advising


Students pursuing pre-professional programs should meet at least annually with their pre-professional academic advisor.  Pre-professional advisors will then be able to designate the student as part of the pre-professional student group for tracking and financial aid purposes. Failure to meet annually with a pre-professional advisor will result in removal from the group.
