Program Requirements

Enrollment in discipline classes is limited. Meeting the program requirements does not guarantee progression towards discipline classes. For this reason, the following criteria is used to determine which students will be selected. Students will be ranked according to the number of natural science and general education courses required for the program that have been successfully completed (see table below). Please note that there is no waiting list.

Criteria for Selection into the Program:

  • Ranking of natural science and general education courses completed
  • Overall Grade Point Average (GPA)
  • Florida residents will be given preference over non-residents, as well as students who are requesting a second milestone review.
