IMPORTANT: UCCS does not have a medicine program. Pre-Medicine Prep is not a major or a minor but a listing of prerequisite courses and recommendations needed to be eligible for admission to the University of Colorado School of Medicine at the Anschutz Medical Campus in Aurora, CO.

A bachelor’s degree with a minimum of 120 credits from an accredited college or university is required to be completed prior to matriculation to the program.

Other schools may have different requirements.  Students should check admissions requirements for all schools to which they plan to apply. Completion of requisite coursework does not guarantee acceptance into any professional degree.

Application Information for the School of Medicine, including contact information, application materials, deadlines, and testing, can be found at: http://www.ucdenver.edu/academics/colleges/medicalschool/

For more information, contact Academic Advising at (719) 255-3260 or advising@uccs.edu

Recommended Courses


Prerequisites: Many courses have prerequisites that fall outside of this list; be sure to check the catalog for course details.

Grades: All requisite coursework should be completed with a grade of “C” or better, and must be completed by time of matriculation. The average cumulative GPA of admitted students is 3.7.

Credit by Exam: Advanced Placement (AP), CLEP, or International Baccalaureate (IB) credit is accepted only if transcript reflects the exact credit earned. Students who have AP, CLEP, or IB credits in the basic sciences are encouraged to take upper-division level courses in those areas.
