Pre-Dentistry, Pre-Medicine, or Pre-Veterinary

Any student desiring to attend dental, medical, or veterinary school will, in most cases, be required to complete a baccalaureate degree in the field of choice. In addition, specific course requirements must be met in Biology, Chemistry, English, Mathematics, Physics, and the Behavioral Sciences. Students must also complete the Dental Aptitude Test (DAT) or the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT) before making application to dental or medical school. The application process should be started at the end of the student’s junior year. UMHB has an agreement with the University of Texas at San Antonio Dental School, allowing students to apply for early acceptance status at the dental school.
