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.
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.
