Courses completed at a community college:   Prospective applicants to the College of Medicine should know that while the college accepts approved courses from a two-year institution, community college or technical school, they may not be viewed by the Admissions Committee as being as rigorous as courses from a four-year institution. Therefore, students are strongly encouraged to avoid taking prerequisites at a two-year institution.

The College of Medicine requires applicants to have a bachelor's degree before enrolling into the program.

All science courses taken require a lab component.

This evaluation is valid for the current application cycle only. Evaluated courses and the transferability of these courses can change, at any time, due to course content and re-evaluation.
