To be eligible for our Future Graduate Program, applicants must have earned at least a Bachelor's degree from a US regionally-accredited college or university.

For applicants from foreign institutions, documentation must be provided that their academic degree has been validated as equivalent to the bachelor's or master's degree conferred by a US regionally-accredited college or university. Applicants from foreign institutions should visit the ACEND website for more information including links to independent foreign degree evaluation agencies. Applicants whose native language is not English must take and pass the TOEFL exam or complete a bachelor’s degree at a US College or University. Official TOEFL scores must be sent directly to the King’s College Graduate Admissions and received by the application deadline. The minimum TOEFL Score needed to apply is 108/120 on the internet-based test.

Other prerequisites that must be satisfied include successful completion (B or better) of the following courses: Anatomy and Physiology (all body systems must be covered; no labs required); organic chemistry (no labs required); and biochemistry (no labs required). An undergraduate GPA of 3.00 or better is also required.

While these prerequisites would not satisfy any of the competencies or performance indicators, students may request to have an assessment of prior learning (e.g. meeting of required competencies), which would be performed by our Program Director and/or Clinical Coordinator. See our policy on assessment of prior learning for more information.
