Admissions Processes

Undergraduate Admissions (Pre-Professional Phase)

First-Time Freshmen

Prospective students wishing to enter the program as freshmen should complete the online undergraduate application.  The following criteria are required for admission:

  • A minimum high school QPA of 3.00 (including 4 units in English, 1 unit in social studies or language, 7 units in mathematics and science; and 4 elective units)
  • A composite math and verbal SAT score of at least 1,100 or a composite ACT score of at least 24 if the test was taken prior to March 2016. For tests taken March 2016 and later, a composite math and verbal SAT score of at least 1,170
  • Evidence of extracurricular activities during high school
  • The ability to meet all of the medical and performance/technical standards of the program

Undergraduate Transfers

Students may apply to transfer into the program based upon their credentials, courses completed at other institution(s), outcomes in courses yet to be completed prior to entry into the professional phase, and space availability. When a student applies we evaluate their credits to determine if they are admissible, and if so whether they would possibly start as a first- or second-year student.

Admission at the transfer level will require a minimum cumulative Q.P.A. of at least a 3.0. Space is extremely limited and we often do not have space for transfer students at all. When we do have space available, competition for those spaces is great and they often go to students who are excelling in their academic programs.

For questions please contact Chris Hilf in the Office of the Dean.
