Applying to health professions schools is a detail-oriented process. One of the main goals of this office is to guide students through the processes of deciding when to apply, completing the application in a timely and comprehensive manner, and navigating the admissions cycle.
Students may begin the process as early as the Fall semester of the junior year, if applying to begin health professional school directly after graduation. Those who decide to take a "glide year" between undergraduate and health professions school will begin the application processes in the Fall of senior year. Still others may return as alums to utilize the office's services.
The first step for all new applicants is to attend an Applicant Workshop, where we will provide an overview of what's expected of you in the application process. The workshops take place in the Fall, with one additional date in early Spring semester. If you miss all of these dates, be sure to contact HPA ASAP to get caught up in the application process.
This section of the website provides basic details about different aspects of applying and admissions for health professional school. More details are provided at the Applicant Workshop, within the Applicant Handbook that is provided at the Workshop, and through consultation with HPA.
Most of this information is geared toward first time applicants. For those who have begun working with our office in a past application cycle, please refer to the Continuing Applicants page for specific information. For those who have applied and were not successful in a previous application cycle, please refer to the Reapplicants page for specific information.
