Pre-Med Preparation

Want to polish your transcript and prepare for a future that includes medical school? The Pre-Med Preparation focus area is a good option for your summer course load.

Summer pre-med courses are perfect if you’re either in a pre-med program or are entering one in the fall. If you are planning to start a pre-med program in the fall, use your summer to take preparatory coursework in Chemistry, Physics, Math, or take an elective to enhance your studies.

Chemistry Department Note: Lab fees, paid at the time of registration, cover the costs of nonreturnable items, chemicals, and reasonable breakage. In addition, students may be charged for excessive breakage, returning equipment uncleaned, or late check-out. Students must present lab fee receipt at the first laboratory meeting.
