The Health Sciences baccalaureate programs are upper-division programs.

Admission to programs leading to a Doctor of Nursing Practice, Doctor of Physical Therapy, or master's degree in Health Administration, Nursing, Nutrition, Physician Assistant, Public Health, or Social Work is normally at entry level only. Credits accumulated in these or similar fields prior to matriculation will be evaluated on an individual basis to determine whether previous graduate work can be applied toward the degree at Stony Brook.

Occupational Therapy (OT) applicants must apply online at www.otcas.org.
