Pre-Medical, Pre-Dental, Pre-Optometry - Associate in General Studies


The following program provides a foundation of general education while fulfilling prerequisites for the study of medicine. Students should check specific requirements of the four-year college where they plan to transfer and specific requirements of the medical college(s) where they plan to apply for admission. Students should select honors courses whenever they are offered.

Since the transferability of courses will vary depending on the specific four-year institution, it is strongly recommended that if students are intending to transfer to a four-year institution, they must consult with the transfer institution and with their respective KCKCC advisor before enrolling in order to determine the transferability of their courses. It is the student's responsibility to follow the transfer requirements established by his/her transfer institution.
