Science Prerequisite Courses for Health Professions

100% online, self-paced courses

The Science Prerequisites for Health Professions online math and science courses are for students who wish to enter a health professions program but may need just one or two courses to fill a gap in their transcript. These courses are taken as needed, and do not require students to be enrolled in an overall program. The courses are self-paced and designed to be completed within 16 weeks.

What are students saying about our courses?

Adanna Hackett

“The online courses allowed me the opportunity to be with my family, while at the same time I was able to accomplish my goal of getting into, and ultimately completing PA school – and for that I’m grateful. Also working at my own pace was pretty cool, since I had a whole life to still manage outside of the ‘classroom.'”
