Applicants must hold a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution of higher education. Applicants must also have a minimum undergraduate GPA of 2.70 on a 4.0 point scale (where A is 4.00), or its equivalent, and good standing (3.00 GPA) in all post-baccalaureate course work.
Applicants must submit the following to the Graduate Recruitment and Admissions Office: • Graduate Application Form • Application fee • Official undergraduate and (if applicable) graduate transcripts from every institution attended except CCSU
Applicants must also sumit to the department Pre-Pac chair: • Essay describing why the applicant is interested in pursuing this program.
The Pre-PAC chair will schedule an interview with the applicant, during which an advisory committee (including the Chief Health Professions Advisor) will work with the candidate to develop an individualized planned program of study in keeping with his or her academic background and professional goals.
Applications for the spring semester must be received by November 1 for students wishing both to begin classes during the summer session and to be considered for financial aid. However, students may begin the program in any semester and applications will be accepted throughout the year within the graduate admission deadlines of June 1 and November 1. Post-baccalaureate certificate students are classified as graduate students; they may be either part-time or full-time and may qualify for financial aid. Only students matriculated as full-time may take nine or more credits a semester. Part-time and nonmatriculated students are limited to less than nine credits/semester.
