Requirements for Current CSU Students:
Students who meet the criteria below are eligible for the Biomedical Sciences waitlist. The department will determine space availability and admission in to the major.
- 3.3 cumulative CSU GPA.
- Grades of B or better in both:
- LIFE102 (College Biology) and
- CHEM111 (General Chemistry)
- Students should plan on completing these requirements before completing 60 total credits.
If students meet all of these requirements, the student must opt in to the waitlist by contacting the Biomedical Sciences department. Ask your Exploratory Studies advisor for contact information.
Tip for prospective transfer students: This is a
capped major which always fills quickly. Earning B’s in College Biology
(LIFE 102), College Chemistry (CHEM111/112), with a transfer GPA of 3.3
will make you eligible for the major/waitlist. It is good to have
another plan in case you do not make it off the waitlist. Consider
choosing an alternative major, such as Biology, Chemistry, Biochemistry,
Microbiology, or Neuroscience and combining it with a Biomedical
Science minor. Students must be admitted prior to earning 60 credits
from all institutions.
Not available to 2nd BS students.
If you like the idea of Biomedical Sciences and health fields, we encourage you to view the many majors in the Health, Life and Food Science or Land, Plant and Animal major track. Talk with your advisor about the best fit for you.
