Prerequisite courses may NOT be taken on a pass/fail option.
Prerequisite courses must be completed with a grade of “C-” or better. Courses graded on a pass/fail option will not be considered.
Required courses may be repeated only one time, with the most recent grade used in the prerequisite GPA calculation. This requirement applies to all courses taken at all colleges and universities.
Advanced Placement (AP) courses in English and psychology are acceptable, if AP scores are 4.0 or higher. No other AP courses will be accepted.
Developmental courses will not be calculated in a candidate’s grade-point average (GPA), i.e., MA 109, ENG W130, or ENG R150.
Transfer courses accepted by IPFW as “undistributed” must be evaluated by the applicable department (i.e. chemistry or biology) before they are accepted as prerequisite courses.
All prerequisite courses must be completed by June 1st for fall admission into the program. No exceptions will be given for completion of summer courses. Applicants are ranked and accepted each year based on their prerequisite GPA.
A minimum prerequisite GPA of 3.3/4.0 is required for all applicants. However, because admission into the program is competitive, completion of all required courses with a prerequisite GPA of 3.6 or higher is strongly recommended.
Credits in human anatomy and physiology and chemistry must be completed within five years of admission to the professional program. Credits in English composition, speech, psychology, and sociology will be accepted for 10 years. Outdated courses must be retaken.
