Non-Degree Seeking Students
A non-degree seeking student is one who wishes to take courses in the Biomedical Informatics Program, but does not intend to pursue a degree or certificate at the time of application. The non-degree seeking student must provide the following admission requirements in order to take classes in the Biomedical Informatics program:
- Completed online application form
- Non-Refundable application fee of $50
- Official transcripts from all previous universities/colleges attended
- Official course by course evaluation of all foreign transcripts. A list of agencies that can complete this evaluation can be found here.
- Applicants whose native language is not English are required to demonstrate English proficiency. The following standardized tests currently satisfy the university's English requirement for nonnative English speakers:
- Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) 213 on the computer-based test; 79-80 on the Internet based test
- International English Language Testing System (IELTS) 6.0 on the test module
- GMAT score of 450; GRE score of 1,000 (old format); GRE score of 306 (new format)
- Scholastic Assessment Test (SAT) with a score of at least 500 in the reading section, or the American College Test (ACT) with a score of at least 20 on the verbal section
- Successful completion of USMLE Step 1 or ECFMG Certification
Non-degree seeking students are not guaranteed future acceptance into the Master of Biomedical Informatics Program. If after taking classes in the program as a non-degree seeking student, the student wishes to become degree seeking, they must apply to the master's program as a new student and meet all the requirements for admission. If accepted into the degree program, credits with the prefix MI taken as a non-degree seeking student will be automatically applied towards the degree.
