UMSL Pre-Health: Incoming Transfer Students

 

UMSL is fortunate to have a strong transfer student population. While many transfer students come from the surrounding community colleges, we have students transfer from a wide variety of institutions. Sometimes when students transfer in, they find that their science classes aren't always the equivalent to ours. Students should work with the transfer coordinators in the Admissions Office to see how their classes will transfer. Also, feel free to contact the prehealth advisor if you have questions.

The complete transfer database can be found here.

Below is a list of equivalencies for some of the local community colleges*:
