Pre-Health Professions Pathway via the Associate of Science in Health Science

Applicants who do not meet the minimum requirements to enter the Associate of Science in Radiation Therapy program may discuss their options with their admissions counselor. Options may include applying to the Associate of Science in Health Science program and enrolling in courses that are included in the Pre-Health Professions Pathway.

The Pre-Health Professions Pathway is designed to prepare students for the Associate of Science degree in Radiation Therapy, or Respiratory Care at Labouré. 

These students may earn admission into their desired program by earning a minimum CGPA 0f 2.7 in the following courses: 

  • MAT 1020: Math for Health Sciences (3 credits)
  • HUM 1010: Introduction to Humanities (3 credits)

  • ANA 1120: Anatomy & Physiology II with lab (4 credits)

Upon completion of the above Pathway coursework, students will be required to take the TEAS and then may submit a Change of Major Form for Matriculated Students to the Admissions Office to request an internal transfer into their chosen program. 

Students who complete the Pre-Health Professions Pathway and successfully change their major will not be required to repeat MAP, and will count all of the above courses toward meeting their Arts & Sciences/general education course requirements in their new program.

Pathway courses must be completed at Labouré with a minimum CGPA of 2.7. A minimum grade of C+ is required for ANA 1010, ANA 1120, and MAT 1020.
