Sample Schedule

The premedical academic program can be tailored to meet the needs of the individual student. The tables in this section illustrate several options: a traditional sequence, a part-time sequence, and, for those students who are prepared to begin General Chemistry and Physics, an accelerated sequence.

Information is also given on summer enrollment for students who may need to begin their studies in the summer before their first fall enrollment to prepare for mathematics, chemistry, and/or physics.

Accelerated Sequence

An accelerated 18-month premedical program, beginning with January enrollment, is available for those students who are prepared academically to begin Calculus, General Chemistry, and Physics.

The following is an example of an accelerated sequence, and should not replace an informed and comprehensive conversation with an academic advisor.

Program planning decisions may vary depending on the student’s prior academic record, preparation, and circumstances. These should be made in consultation with an academic advisor.

Part-time Sequence

A Postbac Premed student beginning part time with the most basic courses might take the following program. Until the third summer, the student could continue to work a full-time job.

The academic program and schedule may be designed to meet each student's needs. The following is an example of a part-time sequence. Decisions regarding course selection and program sequencing may vary depending on the student's prior academic record and preparation. These decisions should be made in consultation with an academic advisor.

Traditional Program Sequence

Academic programs and schedules can be designed in many ways to best meet individual needs. The following is an example of a traditional program sequence. 

Course selection and program sequencing will vary based on the student's prior academic record and preparation. Decisions about the academic program should be made in consultation with an academic advisor.
