Additional considerations for admission to graduate programs in biology
It is important that students interested in graduate study be able to demonstrate undergraduate research experience. You should begin to explore research options during your sophomore year.
Additional considerations for admission to medical, dental and veterinary schools
The requirements for these professional schools are constantly evolving and vary from institution to institution. Please contact the Pre-Health Advisor.
