Health science and medical programs are some of the most popular areas of study around. But since the majority of these programs have a limited number of available seats, admissions are extremely competitive. Furthermore, most colleges and universities require undergraduate students to complete two years of general education and prerequisite courses before they can even apply to a limited enrollment program.
Baker College is pleased to offer opportunities for high-achieving incoming freshmen to earn the degree they want, without delay, through our direct admission program. Direct admissions allow qualified students to secure a seat in any of the limited enrollment programs offered by the College of Health Science.
Direct admission guarantees that freshmen will be granted acceptance into their professional program of choice, beginning their sophomore year. To be accepted for direct admission, students must meet certain academic and testing requirements, and maintain an acceptable academic standing throughout the course of their undergraduate studies.
Baker College currently offers direct admission to ten limited enrollment programs through our College of Health Science. Learn more about each of these individual programs below.
To be considered for direct admission, you’ll need to submit the following items:
These items must be received by Baker College Admissions before December 15* of your senior year of high school.
