Each required course must be completed with a grade of C or better. Courses taken Pass/Fail or Credit/No Credit do not count towards meeting the requirement. Advanced placement credit is accepted only if the school granting the credit lists the specific course(s) and number of units granted per course on an official transcript. In certain circumstances a limited amount of online course work not required for the major and not a prescribed course for application to medical school may be considered. On-line courses need to be from approved universities via the 6 regional accreditors ( http:/// ; http:/// ; http:/// ; http:/// ; http:/// ). You can find out if an online school is accredited by a regional accreditor recognized by the United States Department of Education by searching the United States Department of Education database .
