MEDPREP | Medical/Dental Education Preparatory Program

MEDPREP Prerequisites

The following are courses that individuals need to successfully complete (grades of "C" or above) before the MCAT or DAT exam. They are traditionally known as “Prerequisites” for health professional school. The MEDPREP curriculum is designed for individuals who have completed these prerequisites before entering the program.

You may apply even if you are still completing your prerequisites. However, you should plan to have most or all of your prerequisites complete prior to program entry. Students who are missing more than one prerequisite course will NOT be admitted into the program.
