UMSL Pre-Health Fast Track and Reserved Admissions Programs
Fast Track Programs
UMSL offers several programs that allow students to finish a bachelor's degree after the first year of professional school. Details for each program differs and it is important for interested students to meet with the pre-health advisor to make sure they meet requirements.
UMSL Optometry 3+4
Logan Chiropractic 3+3
Kirksville College of Osteopathic Medicine Still Scholars Early Acceptance Program
We are currently working to expand these types opportunities for our students.
UMKC School of Dentistry
For those interested in attending the UMKC School of Dentistry the Reserved Admissions Program allows students who meet specific criteria to apply to dental school in their sophomore year of college and then engage in developmental opportunities with the Office of Student Programs (at UMKC) throughout the remainder of their college experience. Once a student meets the full criteria, a seat is reserved for them and they are allowed to bypass the traditional dental application process.
