Program Description

Salt Lake Community College offers most, if not all, the courses needed in the freshman and sophomore years of pre-professional programs such as pre-chiropractic, pre-dentistry, pre-law, pre-medicine, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, pre-occupational therapy, physician assistant, and pre-veterinarian.

Requirements for these programs vary from college to college. Programs listed below are examples only. They are best estimates of what most colleges require. Students should check with the advisor of the program to which they wish to transfer for full details. This is important to avoid taking unnecessary courses or missing important requirements.

Associate of Science degrees are not offered in any pre-professional program. Possible AS degrees for pre-professional students are General Studies, Biology, Chemistry or Physical Science. Students should consult an academic advisor to determine which AS degree is best suited to their needs.
