To make it easy, let's break colleges/universities into 3 groups:
- California public colleges/universities (community college, California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC): Approved courses can be found on the ASSIST website
- California private colleges/universities: We have course lists for approximately 50 private schools in California. Visit our California private colleges/universities page to see if your school is included!
- Out-of-State colleges/universities: We have course lists for approximately 400 out-of-state colleges. Visit our Out-of-state colleges/universities page to see if your school is included!
Please visit our web page for more information on Academic Prerequisites.
Also on our website is information related to Advanced Placement (AP) scores.
Please keep in mind that our academic prerequisites are fairly easy to determine. For the most part, we align our requirements with a pre-med/health track. It’s not our intent to require obscure or unique courses to fulfill our requirements.
When submitting your application, you should make your best professional judgment in completing UCSF’s Supplemental Application (which asks you to list courses that fulfill our requirements.) We will conduct a complete academic review of those individuals who are admitted into the program. At that time we will determine whether specific courses satisfy our requirements.
