Second Degree in Biological Sciences
Students requiring significant coursework in the sciences, particularly in biological sciences, may want to explore applying for second degree status. More information about bachelor’s degrees in biology can found at https://www.utdallas.edu/nsm/biology/
Second Degree in Healthcare Studies
The Healthcare Studies major offers students opportunities to gain the knowledge to prepare for a variety of healthcare related careers, including entry to specific healthcare professions. Those with a bachelor’s degree who pursue this option apply for admissions to the UT Dallas. Students are advised for classes and their degree plan through the UTD School of Interdisciplinary Studies. Students consult an advisor in the Health Professions Advising Center (HPAC) for information related to entry to a health professions school. Second degree Healthcare Studies majors may be eligible to participate in the Health Professions to participate in the Health Professions Evaluation (HPE) process. For more information on the Healthcare Studies major, see http://www.utdallas.edu/academics/fact-sheets/is/bs-healthcare-studies.html
This option could serve those who have an undergraduate degree and desire only a few classes to complete requisites prior to applying for entry to a health professions program. Non-degree prospective students should apply for admission to UT Dallas. Accepted students register for a class(es) with advisors in the UT Dallas school housing that class(es). For example, if a student would like to register for Genetics, he or she would see an advisor in the School of Natural Sciences and Mathematics.
Non-degree students seeking to take undergraduate classes to meet requisites for health professions schools should register as Non-Degree Undergraduate. Not all classes may be available, and non-degree students register after degree seeking students.
Non-degree students are welcome to consult an advisor in the Health Professions Advising Center (HPAC) to talk about their plans to apply to health professions schools. Non-degree students are neither eligible to participate in the Health Professions Evaluation (HPE) process nor use the Clearinghouse letter service.
