Admission into dual-degree programs is competitive. Only students who have earned at least 75 credits with an overall GPA of 3.0 are considered. Meeting the minimum criteria for consideration does not guarantee admission.
Students in the dual-degree program may complete up to 9 credits of graduate courses during their senior year, which also fulfill undergraduate open electives. Students must work with their undergraduate adviser and the molecular and cell biology director to ensure that the courses fit into both degree programs. Students must present satisfactory performance in their graduate course work completed during their senior year to be officially admitted into the graduate program upon completion of the BS degree.
