  2. When should I apply? Admission to the University is ongoing and all students are admitted as pre-professional students in health programs that have limited space each year. Pre-professional students must meet designated qualification criteria before they can then apply for admission to the professional sequence of their program. Students are admitted to the program based on the semester they qualify and then by the date they selected their program upon admission to the University. Therefore, we encourage you to apply as early as possible. High School students may apply after they complete their junior year (senior status). We encourage on-line applications to secure the earliest possible date for your application to be received by Admissions.  Click here for more information
