Prerequisite questions and answers
Does it matter how long ago I took my prerequisite courses? For example, do you accept courses taken more than 10 years ago?
All required courses must be completed within ten years of class matriculation.
Does it matter if I take my prerequisite courses at a two-year college instead of a four-year university?
- The GPA is calculated the same way, whether it was taken at a community college or a four-year university. No preference is given to courses taken at either institution.
- Vocational and/or technical courses will not satisfy the prerequisite requirements.
- Please note that some required courses may not be offered at two-year colleges due to the academic level of the curriculum.
What course can I take if my institution does not offer courses in “Human Anatomy” and “Human Physiology?”
If a combined Human Anatomy & Physiology course is taken, applicants must complete both Anatomy & Physiology I and Anatomy & Physiology II with the appropriate laboratories totaling eight semester credit hours. Neither Anatomy & Physiology I nor II, alone, satisfies the Anatomy and Physiology requirements.
