Post-Baccalaureate Application



This Post-baccalaureate Program is designed for career changers and is not a grade enhancement program. This program is for students who have already earned a Bachelor’s Degree (B.A. or B.S.) in a field other than a scientific discipline.

You must:

  • have a cumulative undergraduate GPA of a least 2.80.
  • be ready to take Calculus (i.e., have had college-level pre-calculus or a higher level math course)
  • maintain a 3.2 GPA to remain in the program.



  • Post-baccalaureate students design their own schedules based on the classes they need. They do not have a predetermined curriculum.
  • Post-baccalaureate students register for the same courses as our undergraduate students. They do not have separate sections.
  • Priority registration is always given to undergraduate students. 
  • Post-baccalaureate students who have earned fewer than 24 City College science credits will NOT receive a committee letter from the Director of the Pre-Health Program (PHP).
  • Post-baccalaureate students pay part-time undergraduate tuition + fees.

We also offer options for non-career changing postbac students through our Certificate Program.



Admission to the program as a Post-Baccalaureate student is a TWO-STEP PROCESS:
