Pre-Professional Options

Pre-Professional Options at USC Upstate

Most professional programs require or strongly recommend that you have a bachelor's degree at the time of entry into the professional program. Pre-Professional programs that require, or for which a bachelor's degree is recommended, are: 

Pre-dental icon  Pre-Pharmacy Icon

Entry into pre-professional schools and graduate programs is on a competitive basis. Other pre-professional tracks require that students complete 60+ credit hours of undergraduate credit (about two years of work at USC Upstate, followed by two or more years of professional study elsewhere).
