The 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 Science Program begins in the Fall Quarter. Admission to the Biomedical Sciences Program is considered on a competitive basis for applicants who have completed 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 our rolling admission process, candidates are advised to submit their completed applications early in the admission cycle. No applications will be accepted after July 15th.
