students in the classroomThe Prematriculation Program offers exposure to material seen early in the first year, including courses in Human Structure (both lecture and lab), Critical Thinking and Testing Strategies. Team learning will be used to reinforce the material covered in these courses. The program also will give you additional time to get acquainted with the Dayton area, find a place to live and interact informally with some of your new classmates, faculty and staff.

Students are selected for the program with preference given to the following:

  • Students with a non-science undergraduate major
  • Those who have been out of school for a substantial period
  • Students who are changing professions
  • Students who have educational backgrounds that put them at a disadvantage
  • Members of under-represented minority groups
