The prerequisites (required courses taken prior to the program) are listed below. These courses cannot be over 10 years old at the time of application. For example, if applying in 2017, a course that was taken in 2006 would be too old. All prerequisite courses must be in progress or completed by the time of application to the program, meaning a student may still be taking classes even though he or she has already applied to the program. However, prerequisites must be completed by the end of the spring semester in which applying. A grade of "C" or higher is required for a prerequisite to be satisfied, but the minimum GPA for preqrequisites is now 3.0. The prerequisites may be taken in any order, however it is suggested that:
Algebra be taken prior to chemistry
Biology and Chemistry not be taken in the same semester, in the summer, or online
*This is a co-requisite class if taken on campus. If taken online, student can only register for MAT 135.
**As of 2016, Cultural Anthropology will no longer be able to be substituted for Human Nutrition as a prerequisite. Medical Anthropology must be taken once accepted into the program.
