4/17/2020 Update: Credit/No Credit Classes

Health profession schools normally require a letter grade >C- in all prerequisite classes BUT, due to COVID-19, most health profession schools have waived that rule for spring 2020 and will accept a CR grade even for required prerequisite classes.

How individual profession schools are responding to coronavirus can be found at these links:

TMDSAS : lists Texas public medical, dental, and veterinary schools
AACOMAS : lists most osteopathic medical schools
AMCAS : lists questions pertaining to most schools not listed on TMDSAS or AACOMAS
