Preparation for Post-Baccalaureate Programs

 Students should consult with their advisor to determine the best program for their individual needs. Those who wish to apply to medical, dental, veterinary, pharmacy or other graduate schools should also ascertain the specific admission requirements for the professional schools to which they plan to apply. Consultation with the academic advisor is recommended and the standard curriculum can then be enhanced accordingly. Students may also wish to complete requirements for a minor in Chemistry or Biochemistry (descriptions of these minors are provided under the Chemistry Department section of this catalog).

Additional information is available from the Biology Department Office.

The Pre-Medical and Other Pre-Health Advising Program is described in the Institutes and Enrichment Programs section of this catalog.
