Early Acceptance A three-year option is available to extraordinary students who have completed three years of study at Gannon University (96 credits, which must include all liberal studies requirements), and have achieved early acceptance to an accredited health professional school. The student must petition the Director of the Pre-professional Programs, who in consultation with the Dean of the Morosky College of Health Professions and Sciences, may be awarded a Bachelor of Science degree in Health Sciences, upon completion of the first year of study at an accredited health professional school. The student must submit an official transcript showing successful completion of the first year of course work to the Gannon University Registrar, who will forward it to the Director for review. Upon the Director's and Dean's approval, a B.S. in Health Sciences will be awarded to the student. Advising Upon completion of the freshman year, all students in these programs should select an academic major and follow the curriculum for that major with the advice of a pre-professional advisor. Students who plan a career in medicine should report to the Program Director during their second semester of attendance at Gannon University. Recommendations to professional schools are made by the Program Director in collaboration with other faculty evaluators chosen by the student.
