Eligibility Criteria

  • The general requirement for admission for a U.S. student is a bachelor’s degree from a regionally accredited institution, comparable in standard and content to a bachelor’s degree from the University of California. A scholastic average of B (3.0 on a 4.0 scale) or better is required or its equivalent if the letter grade system is not used—for the last 60 semester units or last 90 quarter units of undergraduate study and in any post-baccalaureate study.
  • Degrees which are not considered comparable include those granted on the basis of work completed at institutions which are not fully accredited and those granted on the basis of non-academic prior learning, test scores, or other than organized supervised coursework in academic subjects.
  • An international student whose post-secondary education is completed outside of the U.S. is expected to hold a degree representing completion of at least four years of study with above average scholarship from a university or university-level institution.
  • Minimum scores in TOEFL(on the paper and pencil test must be at least 560 or at least 87 on the internet-based test.) and IELTS(7.0)
  • Applicants must hold a B.S., D.D.S., or D.M.D. degree, or the equivalent, or be in good standing in the UCLA dental or residency programs. Applicants must have a strong background in the biological (e.g., microbiology, molecular biology, immunology, neurobiology, psychobiology, genetics) and chemical sciences (e.g., biochemistry, organic, inorganic and physical chemistry, thermodynamics), with a minimum 3.0 grade point average in upper division courses in these subjects.
