Pre-Professional Advising

Interested in the Schools of Business?

You should take MTH 111 or ECN 150 (unless you have AP/IB credit for these courses) during your first semester. Ideally, both should be completed in the first year. ACC 111 and upper level Schools of Business courses will be taken during your sophomore year. Admission to the Schools of Business is competitive. Applications are accepted in the spring of sophomore year.

Interested in a Career in Health or Allied Health?

Careers in the Health Professions (e.g., medicine, dentistry) or Allied Health Professions (e.g., Physician’s Assistant, Physical Therapy, Nursing) do not require a particular major, but they do require planning in order to complete requirements and take advantage of additional learning opportunities, such as study abroad. Most pre-health students will take 1-2 science classes in the first semester. For important information about course recommendations based on your AB/IB experience and projected major, see the following website: college.wfu.edu/prehealth

There are no specific requirements for students interested in attending law school or graduate school.
