Post Baccalaureate Pre-health Certificate Program

The post baccalaureate pre-health certificate program, offered on our Broken Arrow campus, targets students who have already graduated  with a non-science degree and provides them with the opportunity to obtain necessary prerequisites for competitive entry into their health professions program of interest.  The post baccalaureate curriculum provides the rigor that the professional programs require, which will enhance the students’ competitive edge for admission. The Broken Arrow office of Pre-Professional Health, located in room 220 of the College of Science and Health Professions building, will serve as the primary advisor for the post baccalaureate certificate students. Please visit the pre-health professions website for more information at: http://academics.nsuok.edu/prehealth/PostBacCertificate.aspx


Other Considerations


As mentioned above, the post baccalaureate programs targets primarily second career individuals with little or no science background. However, individuals that are underrepresented minorities who are economically or educationally disadvantaged;  individuals that have already applied to their health profession program; individuals that require additional courses to enhance their academic record; or individuals that require leveling courses to be competitive for entry into a graduate program, and are not currently competitive for a career in health professions or graduate school would be able to enroll in the sciences courses offered in the post baccalaureate program. These individuals would not be eligible to receive a certificate however.
