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.

Other prerequisites that must be satisfied include successful completion (B or better) of two biology courses (e.g. Anatomy, Physiology, no labs required); successful completion (B or better) of two chemistry courses (e.g. organic chemistry, biochemistry, no labs required); undergraduate GPA of 3.00 or better.

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.
