NKU pre-professional programs are offered to students who plan to attend a professional program following their work at NKU. It covers the following areas: pre-dental, pre-engineering, pre-medical, pre-optometry, pre-physician assistant, pre-pharmacy, pre-physical therapy, and pre-veterinary medicine.
The information about pre-professional programs is general. Students interested in a professional program are advised to work closely with an NKU advisor who specializes in the professional area of interest. Students whose interests lie outside these specific areas should consult with an advisor before registering for classes. Students interested in a career in occupational therapy, podiatry, or another medically-related area, should consult an advisor in biology or chemistry.
