NOTICE: the BS/MD program requirements have changed and this page is only for students applying for admission into the undergraduate Bioengineering portion of the BS/MD program during Fall 2015 or beyond. Students enrolling in the undergraduate Bioengineering portion of the BS/MD between Fall 2006 - Fall 2014 should refer to the BS/MD (Fall 2006 - Fall 2014) webpage for details regarding the previous version of the BS/MD program.
The Department of Bioengineering is proud to offer a joint BS/MD program with the University of Toledo College of Medicine. Students admitted to this program are provided a mentoring program and guaranteed an interview with the College of Medicine Admissions committee through an early admissions pathway provided they maintain a cumulative GPA of at least 3.5.
BS/MD Admission Requirements
All applicants are admitted to the undergraduate portion of the BS/MD program if they meet the following requirements:
U.S. citizenship or permanent resident status in the U.S (permanent residency "green" card). If applying as a permanent resident, an applicant must be a permanent resident at the time of application and will be required to submit a photocopy of the front and back of their permanent residency card.
a cumulative high school GPA of at least 3.8 on a 4.0 scale
a composite ACT score of at least 30 or a composite SAT math and critical reading score of at least 1340
All qualified applicants are accepted to the undergraduate portion of the BS/MD program and will be invited to participate in a College of Medicine mentoring program. Undergraduate BS/MD students that successfully complete the requirements of this mentoring program and maintaining a 3.5 cumulative GPA will be invited for an early interview with the College of Medicine Admissions Committee during the Fall of their 4th year during our 5 year curriculum.
Given the admission requirements that BS/MD applicants must meet, we strongly encourage all BS/MD applicants to apply for the Presidential Scholarship.
