Students in the pre-professional phase are required to maintain an overall GPA of 3.00, as well as a 3.00 average in all prerequisite science courses and/or labs to be considered for admission to the professional phase.

Students who have successfully met all required liberal arts core requirements and science prerequisites may apply for admission to the professional program, following their second year as Pre-PA.

These students are guaranteed an interview with the PA interview committee and will receive preferential consideration in this highly competitive area. 

Those students who have previously completed a baccalaureate degree at Marywood University or another accredited institution are not required to complete the liberal arts core requirements, but must have the prerequisite science courses to be considered for admission to the professional program.
