This certificate provides nondegree seekers an opportunity to access the courses they need to complete the health profession prerequisites. If admitted as a nondegree seeker you will not be able to earn the certificate since it must coincide with the awarding of a degree, but it allows you to take the courses you need to pursue your desired health profession.

These requirements and procedures are specifically for students who are pursuing this certificate as a nondegree seeker. Please be sure to read through all of the instructions and requirements listed below.

Students must apply to the certificate program after or while completing the following qualifying courses with B- or better grades: 

  • CH 301
  • One from: SDS 302, M 316, M 408C, M 408K, M 408N

 

Once you have completed these courses with at least a B- or are currently taking these courses and would like to be admitted to the Certificate submit an application.

 

Please submit the required application for admission into the certificate program.

 

The Biology and Chemistry courses listed here are the pre-requisite courses for our upper division courses in those disciplines. Physics is a prerequisite for multiple pre-health professions:

  • Biology: BIO 311C, 311D, 206L
  • Chemistry: CH 302, 204
  • Physics: PHY 302K + 102M, 302L + 102N. The following physics sequences may substitute if they are already completed:  317K + 117M, 317L + 117N; 301 + 101L, 316 + 116L; 303K + 103M, 303L + 103N

 

Successful completion of the lower-division Biology and Chemistry courses listed above will allow you to continue on to your upper-division Biology and Chemistry. Below is a list of prerequisite courses organized by health profession. You should always refer to Health Professions Office for the most up to date health profession prerequisites.
