The Committee Letter Process

Only undergraduate and post-baccalaureate students who are part of the program receive correspondence in regards to this letter. Students are given a series of  mandatory workshops during this phase. Committee Letter Interviews will be conducted by the CCNY Pre-Health Faculty Committee during the summer of the student's application cycle to professional school. Undergraduate students must meet with the Pre-Health Faculty Committee for their committee letter. Post-baccalaureate students will be interviewed by the Pre-Health Director. The goal is to have the  undergraduate and post-bac committee letters completed by the conclusion of the summer as students submit their applications to professional school.

If you are an alumni of PHP/CCNY and wish to apply to professional school, it is imperative that you contact the office by calling us at 212-650-6622 or emailing us at during the early winter PRIOR to the launch of the professional school application season.
The  Pre-Health Faculty Committee will not write nor support students applying to professional schools of medicine (MD/DO), dentistry, optometry, podiatry and veterinary medicine if they are NOT officially part of the program.
Students who are not eligible for a committee letter:
  • Pre-pre-health 
  • students who are on probation or have been dismissed from the program
  • students who are not officially part of the program
  • Post-bac students who have less than 24 CCNY science credits.
