This is the pathway using courses and curricula in the existing and approved Biology B.S. program for students to earn their degree in 3.5 years. This shortened timeframe will save time to degree, costs, and be able to focus on the next steps whether it is to attend a graduate program, medical program, or move into the workforce.
To be successful in this program students that attempt this accelerated timeframe should have a strong high school GPA and high SAT scores in both Math and English (suggested score of 550 on each section(CR/M). Those students that matriculate with AP courses will also find the workload less rigorous and taking some courses in the summer will allow for more flexibility to explore other courses that may be of interest.
All requirements of the Biology B.S. must be met along with all other university degree requirements.
This plan of study will satisfy most medical, including physician’s assistant programs, and graduate school requirements. Be sure to review exactly the requirements of any school you are interested in to determine specifics.
