Interested in Post-Baccalaureate Study?
Enrolling in undergraduate courses after completing a baccalaureate degree is an attractive option for many students pursuing health careers. Some post-bac students may want to enhance their applications for graduate schools, while others may be interested in changing career paths. Post-bac study allows students to:
- Repeat courses to improve grades
- Complete prerequisite courses
- Earn a second bachelor’s degree
At UO, post-bac students preparing for advanced studies in health fields do not have special admissions requirements, follow a prescribed curriculum, or earn a certificate. Rather, they apply for general post-bac undergraduate admission and choose from the wide array of courses and opportunities UO provides to develop their own individualized plan of study. Individualized, however, does not mean without guidance. Health Professions Program Advisors are available to help prospective and current post-bac students make decisions that move them closer to achieving their academic and career goals. To make an in-person or phone appointment with a Health Professions Advisor, call Center at 541-346-3211. In addition to advising, the Health Professions Program provides workshops, classes, and events for students interested in pursuing health careers. For information about the UO admissions process, residency status, and funding resources, see the Office of Admissions and the Office of Student Financial Aid and Scholarships.
