Pre-requisites are ENG 101, MTH 100 or higher, BIO 201, BIO 202, SPH107, and PSY210.

Students are selected based on the following point system:                                                                  

  1. Score on ACT with a minimum composite of 18 required                                                                     
  2. Three points are awarded for an A, two for a B, and one for a C in ENG 101, MTH 100, BIO 201, and BIO 202.                    
  3. One point each is awarded for completion of PSY 210, SPH 107, BIO 220, and a Humanities with a C or higher.
