Post-Baccalaureate

A new accelerated Post Baccalaureate program at CCNY started Fall 2021.

CCNY now also offers an accelerated health professions certificate program. Click here to compare both programs or visit new program's page for details.

 
Post-Baccalaureate Eligibility Requirements (Non-Accelerated Track)

Admission to the program as a Post-Baccalaureate student for the non-accelerated track is a two-step process:

1. You must first complete the primary application (2nd Degree/Undergraduate Transfer Application) through CUNY admissions. Students are encouraged to apply directly online. https://www.ccny.cuny.edu/admissions/transfersecond-degree-student-application-hub

Students must request two official transcripts, as each step requires an official transcript. Please note that The Pre-Health program does not have access to any documents being sent to CUNY, or the Admissions Office of the City College of New York.

2. Submit the following documents directly to the Pre-Health Program (PHP) by email or mail:

  • PHP secondary Application:  Post-Baccalaureate Application.
  • Two letters of recommendation - must be written on the recommender's department/institution/company letterhead, and must be signed. Letters must be sent directly from the recommender by mail, or as a PDF signed document to the email address below; 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 professional school would suffice.
  • A current cv/resume;
  • A personal statement. 
  • An official transcript(s) from the college/university(s) you received your bachelor's degree, with the notation that you have been conferred/ officially graduated with a final cumulative GPA.
The minimum 2.80 cumulative undergraduate grade point average is required for admission to the program.  Any application received with a final cumulative GPA of less than 2.80 will not be considered.
 
Importantly:
  • Post-baccalaureate students in the non-accelerated track do not have separate sections of math and science courses. They register for the same courses as our undergraduate students;
  • Priority registration is always given to undergraduate students. 
  • PHP for post-baccalaureate student is a career changer program and not for grade enhancement.
  • All post-baccalaureate students must demonstrate that they have completed Pre-calculus or a higher level Math course before they can be permitted to register for any science courses.  
  • Post-baccalaureate students will NOT receive a committee letter from the Director of the PHP who has earned fewer than 24 City College science credits.
  • All post-baccalaureate students must maintain a 3.2 grade point average to remain in  the program.

All materials must be received by the PHP by the following deadlines:

  • Fall Semester: August 1st
  • Spring Semester: December 1st
  • Summer : May 1st
