About the Program

Post Bac. Student

The specific program of study will be individualized to meet the student’s needs based on previous academic experience and professional goals. Students who have already completed a baccalaureate degree in a non-science major and who decide to pursue a career in a medical profession must return to school to complete the premedical science/math prerequisites. The University of Hartford has established a Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Professions program with these individuals in mind.

Certificate Requirements

Students who complete at least 30 credits of undergraduate science/math course work at the University of Hartford and obtain a 3.0 or better GPA with no grade below a B– will be awarded a Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Professions Certificate and will be eligible for an interview and letter of evaluation for application to medical professional school from the Premedical Professions Advisory Committee. Students who complete at least 16 credits (four 4-credit lab science courses) and obtain a 3.0 or better GPA with no grade below a B– will be eligible for an interview and letter of evaluation.
