We understand how complicated it can be to find all the information you need in one place. For your convenience, the DPC Pre-Health Office has compiled a list of average science GPAs, average overall GPAs, average test scores, and prerequisites for all professional schools, pipeline programs, and post-bac programs within the state of Arizona. These materials are meant to serve as a general guide and are based on the current statistics and prerequisites that were provided either via admissions counselors, websites, or print material. As new statistics or prerequisites become available, we will update our information. For the most accurate and up-to-date information, please consult the individual admissions department or visit the websites for each school which has been hyperlinked within the document.
Arizona State University offers courses that fulfill the requirements for health professional schools. Check out the prerequisites for each course.
