Other Prerequisite Coursework Considerations
- Pass/Fail courses are acceptable for prerequisite courses taken in spring 2020 only.
- All prerequisite courses must be successfully completed with a grade of “C” or better (“C minus” grades are not acceptable).
- Advanced Placement (AP) and International Baccalaureate (IB) test credit can be accepted towards prerequisite requirements. To apply AP or IB test credits towards prerequisite requirements, the credits must be broken down by subject on the undergraduate transcript. An official letter from the registrar, including subject breakdown, is also acceptable.
- Prerequisite courses may be in-progress or planned at the time of application. However, all courses must be successfully completed with an official transcript submitted to the Office of Graduate Admission prior to matriculation.
All planned or in-progress coursework must be listed on the GradCAS application at the time of application submission; not doing so will result in the applicant not meeting all admissions requirements and therefore will not be eligible for admission review.
Online courses offered through UNE’s Online Science Prerequisites as well as online courses from other regionally accredited U.S. colleges or universities are acceptable.
Letters of Recommendation
Three (3) letters of recommendation are required* – submitted via GradCAS
At least one recommendation must come from a science professor/faculty researcher. The admissions committee seeks evaluation letters that outline a holistic description of the applicant, including information on student engagement, interpersonal skills, character, and professionalism.
- UNE COM prefers that all letters of evaluation be submitted directly through GradCAS.
- Evaluation letters from Interfolio are acceptable, as long as the letter is sent directly to the Office of Graduate Admission by the letter writer.
*Letters from friends or family members are not acceptable
