Students can register as non-degree seeking status which provides them the opportunity to take biomedical science graduate courses for enrichment or to meet pre-acceptance requirements for entry into a graduate degree program. Non-degree seeking students that complete Biomedical Science graduate courses can transfer 1/3 of the graduate degree (10 credits) into the MS Biomedical Science Degree program of study based on student’s acceptance in a future admissions cycle.
Can any other test substitute for the Graduate Record Examination (GRE)?
No. You must take the Graduate Record Examination (GRE). . No other test scores are acceptable. These scores may not be more than five years old.
If I take the GRE after the deadline (March 1st summer, April 1st Fall, October 1st Spring), will I be considered?
I have some courses in progress (example Biochemistry) and these courses will be completed after the application deadline. Can I still apply?

What if I get accepted while the courses are in progress?
Your acceptance is provisional and is contingent upon your successful passing each pre-requisite course.
What type of letters of recommendation should be submitted?
Two letters from instructors who can testify to your characteristics, integrity, application, and aptitude in science. The third letter can be from a supervisor if you have been in the work world or volunteering at an organization.
Where the letters of recommendation should be sent?
The letters of recommendation can be uploaded to the application or send to Office of Graduate Programs firstname.lastname@example.org.
When does the review of applications usually begin?
