Each Health Sciences School is responsible for determining its own admissions policy and for selecting its own students. Admissions decisions in all programs are made independently of an applicant's ability to finance his/her own education.

Health Sciences programs have different admissions requirements, which may include specific courses, minimum g.p.a., and related health care experience. Application deadlines and start dates (Summer, Fall, Spring) also differ so before you apply, you should visit the Schools for details. You can also attend the information sessions that are held throughout the year.

You can apply on-line to undergraduate and graduate programs in the Schools of Nursing, Social Welfare, Health Technology and Management, the Graduate Program in Public Health and the Graduate Program in Nutrition/Family Medicine.

Please contact the School of Dental Medicine and the School of Medicine for information.
