Post-Baccalaureate Eligibility Requirements

Please also note that due to unprecedented enrollment for CCNY/CUNY, we can no longer guarantee that newly accepted post-baccalaureate students will be able to register for math and science courses. Priority registration is always given to undergraduate students. Post-baccalaureate students do not have separate sections of math and science courses only; they register for the same math and science courses as our undergraduate students. If you are able to register for courses, please know that moving forward each subsequent registration will be a challenge each semester. We will do our best to identify seats for the post-bac students but unfortunately, we cannot offer any more guarantees.

The Program in Premedical Studies at The City College of New York is a program for career changers.  If you are looking for a post-bac program to enhance your undergraduate science grades, this is not the program for you. Also note that if you are considering applying to the following professional schools/programs, this is NOT the program for you:Nursing, Physician's Assistant, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy, and Pharmacy.

Admission to the program is a two-step process: you must first complete the City University Transfer Application and apply online as a second-degree, undergraduate student. There are no more paper applications.  All students are encouraged to apply directly online. The link to apply online is here:

The second part of the admissions process requires that you submit all documents below with the Post-Baccalaureate Application form for Admission. Prospective students who are interested in applying as post-baccalaureate students to the Program in Premedical Studies must submit the following directly to the Program:

·The Program in Premedical Studies Post-Baccalaureate Application.

·Two letters of recommendation - Letters of recommendation can either be included with your application or sent separately to the Director of the program. Letters do not necessarily have to be from faculty; anyone who you feel can provide us with a recommendation as to why they feel you would make a good candidate for this program as well as for medical school would suffice, BUT THEY MUST BE PROFESSIONAL LETTERS OF RECOMMENDATION (written on a letterhead) - please, no letters from family members or personal friends!

·A current cv/resume;

·A personal statement. Students are asked to respond to the following question: "Please describe your professional goals. Include in this description a discussion of the factors and experiences which contributed to their formulation."

·an official transcript(s) from the college/university(s) you received your bachelor's degree, with the notion that you have been officially graduated with a final, cumulative GPA.

Please note that a minimum 2.8 cumulative undergraduate grade point average is required for admission to the program.Any application received with a final, cumulative GPA of less than 2.8 will not be considered.

All post-bac students must demonstrate that they have completed Precalculus before they will be permitted to register for any science courses.If post-bac students cannot provide evidence that they have successfully completed Precalculus, (ie, a transcript), they will be required to take the Math Placement Test PRIOR to their Orientation/Registration to the college. If the test determines that post-bac students are not currently testing at the Precalculus level they will NOT be permitted to take any science courses.

No post-baccalaureate student will receive a committee letter from the Director of the Premedical Studies Program who has earned fewer than 24 City College science credits.  All post-baccalaureate students must also maintain a 3.2 grade point average to remain in the program.

All materials must be received by the Premedical Studies Office by the deadline dates that are as follows:

Fall Semester: August 1

Spring Semester: December 1

Summer Semester: May1
