Provisional Acceptance For Masters In Biomedical Sciences

The Admissions Committee recognizes that undergraduate GPA’s and performance on standardized tests are not always reliable predictors of student success.  Credentials such as personal statements, letters of recommendation, extracurricular and volunteer/service activities, undergraduate performance, interviews and overall academic credentials are also significant when making admissions decisions.  At the discretion of the admissions committee, students may be admitted as provisional students. If a student is provisionally accepted, their credit load will be determined by the admissions committee and the Dean.  All final decisions are at the discretion of the Dean of the College of Biomedical Sciences Program.

Graduate students must satisfy all provisions and/or conditional admission requirements in a timely manner. Students will not be able to register for the comprehensive exam or apply for graduation if they have not fulfilled their provisional requirements.
