Undergraduate Professional Programs - Supplemental Admissions
Our undergraduate professional programs are only open to juniors and seniors and are competitive with limited enrollment. Admission to UConn or to the Allied Health Sciences major does not guarantee admission to a professional program. Each program has specific prerequisite course and application requirements.
Information for Incoming Freshmen
If you are an incoming freshman and you plan to apply to one of our professional programs, we highly recommend that you declare an Allied Health Sciences major upon admission to UConn. This way, you’ll be assigned to an AHS academic advisor who will help ensure you meet any professional program prerequisites. You can also take advantage of our Guaranteed Admission criteria for admission to your desired professional program.
To take advantage of guaranteed admission, you must meet all of the following requirements:
- Enter UConn as a freshman
- Apply to chosen professional program within two years of freshman admission
- Complete three successive semesters of full-time study of required UConn coursework
- Maintain overall GPA of 3.0 or higher for Dietetics and Medical Laboratory Sciences or 3.2 or higher for Diagnostic Genetic Sciences
- Meet all professional program admission requirements and submit program application by the deadline
Information for Transfer/Re-Admission Students
If you are a junior or senior transfer or re-admission student and you plan to apply to one of our professional programs, you may do so directly if you meet all program prerequisites. You will be required to submit both your transfer application or re-admission application to UConn and the appropriate professional program application to the Department of Allied Health Sciences. Both applications must be submitted by February 1 in order to be considered, and you must be admitted or re-admitted to the University before you can be accepted into an Allied Health Sciences professional program.
If you do not meet program prerequisites at the time of your transfer or re-admission to UConn, you may declare an Allied Health Sciences major or another major and then apply into the professional program after meeting all program requirements.
