  3. Grade Point Average: All degree-seeking, certificate, and non-degree applicants must have a baccalaureate degree and or graduate degree from a regionally accredited college or university and meet the program minimum grade point average (GPA) on a 4.00 scale. Applicants who do not meet the minimum program GPA requirement may be considered on a case-by-case basis by the program director.
  4. Academic and Professional References: Degree-seeking applicants are required to provide two letters of recommendation except for the following programs which require three letters of recommendation - Biomedical Sciences, Ph.D., Doctor of Medicine, Reproductive Clinical Sciences, Ph.D., Pathologists’ Assistant, and Physician Assistant. The letters of recommendation and or forms must be completed by faculty at colleges attended by the applicant who are familiar with the student’s academic and research capabilities, and who are persons qualified to judge (e.g., supervisor) the applicant’s potential to complete the graduate program successfully. References from close friends and family members are unacceptable. Premedical Advisory Committee letters and Interfolio letters are also accepted. The letters of recommendation are part of the electronic application and may vary by the CAS system. If a recommendation form is submitted in paper form, it must be received by the Admissions & Enrollment Office in a sealed envelope with the recommender’s signature written across the envelope flap. The Admissions & Enrollment Office may accept letters of recommendation for the School of Health Professions via email at hpadmissions@evms.edu. Graduate Certificate applicants are not required to submit letters of recommendation.
  5. Prerequisite Courses: Specific programs require prerequisite courses be completed prior to enrolling in the program. Applicants are encouraged to review the prerequisite requirements on the program of interest homepage.
