Don’t just apply — apply yourself
Regardless of your academic background, Cal State Fullerton’s Pre-Health Professions Postbaccalaureate Program helps you become a competitive professional health care school applicant.
Our Career Changer Program is designed for students who have no science background. You can choose between a full-time or part-time schedule.
If you have completed at least one year of general biology and one year of general chemistry, the full-time Academic Finisher Program allows you to complete your remaining professional school requirements in one year.
See our Schedule page to learn more about the differences between programs.
