Dual Admission Program

Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine

Dual admission programs are currently in effect with the Illinois Institute of Technology and the University of St. Francis, Fort Wayne, IN. Both are post-baccalaureate agreements which do not involve transfer of credit. Details of these programs are available through the Office of Admissions.

Selected students who have demonstrated the capacity to successfully manage course work for their primary academic degree, may request to enroll in a second degree program. This can be developed in three different settings: 1. Students who are enrolled in one of the MWU Masters Degree programs and are accepted into an MWU doctoral degree program on that same campus may elect to complete the Masters Degree already begun. 2. Students who wish to pursue a Masters Degree which is not offered at MWU (may include but not be limited to MPH, MBA, MEd) should investigate information about their desired program and set up  an appointment to discuss with a Dean's Office representative. Students have a number of options for institutions offering such degrees in the metropolitan area. 3. Students who wish to apply for a PhD program anywhere in the United States should investigate information about their desired program and set up  an appointment to discuss with a Dean's Office representative.  Typically, those entering a leave of absence to participate in a PhD program will do so between years 2 and 3 of the DO program and may not enter the PhD program until after successfully completing COMLEX Level 1.
