The College offers excellent preparation for graduate, professional study in a number of disciplines. Students who are planning to attend graduate professional schools select an undergraduate major that enables them to meet the admission requirements of the program and work carefully to meet specific course requirements and grade point averages required for consideration for admission.
Pre-Medical and Pre-Health Professions Advising
Students seeking admission to a health professional program often complete a major in the sciences and are advised by science faculty with experience working with students who plan to attend medical, pharmacy, dental, veterinary, optometry, podiatry, or chiropractic school at institutions other than the College.
Students seeking admission to one of the College's graduate health professional programs in athletic training, exercise physiology, health information management, health informatics, nursing, occupational therapy, physical therapy, PA medicine or social work should work closely with advisors to ensure that they meet undergraduate degree requirements as well as specific program prerequisites.
Students seeking admission to law school may major in any one of a number of academic disciplines. These students will participate and assist with an active pre-law program and with a student-governed Pre-Law Society. The Pre-Law Society, under the guidance of its faculty advisor, will mentor and guide pre-law students through all steps of the law school application process. The Pre-Law Society also sponsors workshops and speakers, as well as other opportunities to explore and examine the legal profession.
Other Pre-Professional Advising
Students seeking admission to other professional programs in disciplines such as library science are well served by members of the faculty who have the expertise to guide them in selecting majors and activities that support their admission to these programs.
