Baccalaureate/MD Program (Bac/MD)
NOTICE: The BAC to MD program has changed for students applying for admission into undergraduate programs at UT for fall 2015 and beyond. There is no longer a guaranteed acceptance into the College of Medicine as a high school senior and students can no longer complete the bachelor’s degree and MD degree in a shortened time period through the “in absentia” process.
Students admitted into the BAC to MD program Fall 2006 through Fall 2014 were accepted under the previous version of the program. The conditions of their acceptance remain the same.
The College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics, College of Language, Literature and Social Science, and the College of Communications and Art are proud to offer the joint BAC to MD pipeline program with the University of Toledo College of Medicine. Students admitted to this program are provided a mentoring program and guaranteed an interview with the College of Medicine’s Admissions Committee through an early admissions pathway provided they maintain a cumulative college GPA of at least 3.5 and have been involved in extra-curricular activities demonstrating a sincere interest in a medical career as well as demonstrating a compassionate and caring attitude.

All applicants are admitted to the undergraduate portion of the BAC/MD program if they meet the following requirements:
