The UNF Biomedical Pre-Professional Program offers special services to students who have a bachelor's degree or higher and who wish to matriculate to medical professional schools. Students preparing for careers in the following are eligible: medicine, dentistry, optometry, physician assistance, pharmacy, podiatry, or veterinary medicine. To make optimal use these services, post-bac students who have little background in the basic sciences should begin in the summer semester.
The UNF program is designed primarily for students who have received a baccalaureate degree (minimum 3.2 GPA) but who have not majored in one of the natural sciences and have not attempted to enter medical professional school. It is not a “remedial” program for students who need to improve their performance in the basic science courses required by medical professional schools.Students enrolled in the post-baccalaureate Pre-Med program must maintain a minimum overall GPA of 3.3 and a minimum science-math GPA of 3.5 to stay in the program and be eglible for a certificate of completion.
Students in the program receive priority status for UNF course registration. A Certificate of Completion is awarded to students who complete 30 or more credits while maintaining an overall GPA of 3.3 or higher, and a science/math PGA of 3.5 or higher.
To apply for the post-baccalaureate Biomedical Pre-Professional program, two applications are required.
The first required application is for general admission to the University.
The second required application is for the Pre-Med Program.
Applications for the Post-Baccalaureate Biomedical Pre-Professional program are accepted any time, but to meet priority registration deadlines the university application for admission for Summer and Fall classes should be completed by February 4 or by the deadline listed on the university website (as deadlines for the university are subject to change). To meet priority registration deadlines for Spring semester, all application materials should be completed by October 1 or by the deadline listed on the university website. If you do not adhere to the transfer application deadlines for the university you will not be considered for the Post-Baccalaureate PreMedical program.
