Post-Baccalaureate Application Requirements

Admission into the PBPMP is highly selective.  The student’s application is evaluated on a number of factors, which include:

  • A bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
  • Demonstration of academic excellence (minimum math/science & cumulative grade point averages of 3.0)
  • Evidence of care giving experiences, including volunteer work
  • Experience in a health-care setting (either paid or volunteer)
  • A realistic understanding of the demands of the profession
  • Two supportive letters of recommendation from faculty members (non-traditional students may provide letters from supervisors or someone who knows them well)

Applications are accepted for the fall semester within the time frame listed below.  Material received after these dates will not be considered.  Once an application and all supplemental materials are received, they will be reviewed by the Admissions Committee.

The application and all supplemental materials must be received by the deadline for the application to be considered.   Missing recommendation letters, test scores, etc. will cause your file to be incomplete, and unable to be reviewed.
