University of Michigan-Flint Premedical Studies
post baccalaureate alternatives
If you have already graduated from college and are interested in pursuing a medical degree, your basic goal is to complete the required premed courses. Premed students with non-science degrees should already have the strengths of liberal arts breadth and/or unique preparation (e.g. engineering or business degree) that will lend strength to your medical school application. To complete the necessary premed courses, you can choose to take courses as a non-candidate-for degree (NCFD) student; however, to qualify for student loans, post-baccalaureate premed students need to be in a degree-granting program, either a second undergraduate degree or a master's degree. We recommend that you speak with a faculty or academic advisor before deciding on a plan, which also should include extracurricular activities such as patient contact experience and community involvement.
