Frequently Asked Questions

Am I required to send CSUSM my GRE scores before I am admitted to the program?

No. The Pre-Health Professions Program does not require the GRE.


If I graduated from CSUSM, do I still need to send in official transcripts?

If you took classes at or graduated from CSUSM, we will be able to pull up your CSUSM grades on our system once your Program Application is received.

If you attended any colleges or universities prior to attending CSUSM, transcript copies may be in our system but please email your advisor to verify this before omitting your official transcript requirement.
However, if you graduated from CSUSM and later attended courses at other colleges or universities, you need to send in official transcripts from these institutions.

I'm an international student - Who do I work with on my student status/admission at CSUSM?

The Pre-Health Professions Program does not accept international students.

How do I request Financial Aid?

This program is financial aid eligible through unsubsidized federal loans for the first year only. Please keep this in mind as you think about financing the program over the two-year period.  If you plan finance your first year using financial aid, you may submit the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA) application prior to being admitted into the program.
