Course Equivalency

Recommended Preparation:

High School courses in biology, anatomy/physiology, and chemistry with a laboratory.

Application, transcripts, and the Personal Statement are to be submitted online during the application period.  Transcripts must be official for submission with the application. A copy of a high school diploma will not be accepted in place of transcripts.

 All applicants should request one (1) official transcript from each college (including Pasadena City College) and high school they have attended.  Applicants will open, scan and save the transcripts as a PDF file to upload to the online application.  Once you have opened the official transcripts, you will now have a set of transcripts for your personal records.  All applicants are required to upload a set of official transcripts from each college (including high school) attended with your online application.

Follow these basic directions for scanning documents to your online application:

·Open and scan the official transcripts using a device such as a printer or scanner

·Follow the scanner manufacturer’s directions to scan each document to your computer or USB drive.

·Select the PDF file format option before scanning.  Only PDF files of your transcripts and other supporting documents will be accepted.  Formats such as JPEG, GIF, BMP, TIF, screenshot, word documents, etc. will not be accepted for the application process.

·Save your PDF document to a folder in a location on your computer or removable drive that you can easily access (Desktop or Documents folder is suggested) 

Note: Students who do not have access to a personal scanner may choose to use a commercial copying center to have their required documents scanned and made into PDFs that then may be uploaded as part of your application.

Follow these basic directions for uploading documents to your online application:

·When prompted on the application to upload your documents marked “Drop files here or Select Files” click on this button

·Find the PDF files you want to upload from your computer or flash drive.

·Select the file by double clicking on it (tap twice)

·Your file will be uploaded
