Selection Process

Masters of Arts in Biomedical Sciences Program

The Master of Arts in Biomedical Sciences Program uses a rolling admission process in which completed applications are reviewed and decisions are made at regular intervals during the admissions cycle. The Master of Arts in Biomedical Sciences Program begins in the Fall Quarter. Admission to the Biomedical Sciences Program is considered on a competitive basis for applicants who have achieved the required prerequisites. Multiple criteria are used to select the most qualified candidates, including selection of those students the Admissions Committee feels would benefit the most from the Program. Selection decisions for the Program are made by the Biomedical Sciences Program Admissions Committee with the approval of the Program Director and the Dean of the College of Health Sciences until the class is filled. To maximize their competitiveness within the rolling admission process, candidates are advised to submit their completed applications early in the admission cycle.

After receiving completed application packets, the information provided is verified to determine whether all prerequisite coursework has been completed satisfactorily or will be completed prior to potential matriculation and also to verify the cumulative GPAs for applicants for all completed courses. Completed applications are forwarded to the Biomedical Sciences Program Admissions Committee. Applicants will receive notification in writing of admissions decisions.

Please Note: Applicants may track the receipt of their application materials and the status of their files on the University's website. Instructions for accessing account information will be sent to the applicant by the Office of Admissions after receipt of the application. Applicants are responsible for notifying the Office of Admissions of any changes in their telephone number, mailing address or e-mail address.
