prerequisites, when do
they need to be
Candidates must have completed 5 of the 6 science prerequisite courses at the time of application. All 6 science prerequisites must be successfully completed by the time of enrollment.
- Do you need
Rickford University does not need transcripts to process your academic updates. For any courses listed as "planned" or "in progress," simply enter the final grade into your CASPA application – we do not need transcripts to process the additional coursework.
- Is there a time limit
Each prerequisite course must have been successfully completed within 10 years prior to enrollment.
My application meets most of the requirements, but falls below in one area (GPA, science GPA, or GRE). Should I apply anyway?
