Direct admission programs
Limited enrollment health science majors are among the most popular choices for incoming students. Eligible students must complete a competitive application process to earn a seat after completing the prerequisite courses.
Direct admission allows high-performing high school graduates to avoid the competitive application process (and potential waitlist) and gain guaranteed acceptance into any of our nine limited enrollment programs:
To be considered for direct admission, you’ll need to submit the following items before December 15 of your senior year:
- A completed Baker College application
- A copy of your high school transcripts
- A cumulative GPA of 3.5 or higher
- A minimum grade of 2.7 or higher (on a 4.0 scale) in biology and one other science course.
