- WashU PBPM Application: Applicants can apply directly to our program though our internal application system; this may be preferable if you plan to apply to our program only or to just a few programs.
- PostBacCAS: Applicants planning to apply to several post-bacc programs may find it convenient to apply through PostBacCAS the centralized application system (CAS) that many post-bacc programs use. The advantage of PostBacCAS is that you submit your application materials just once and, when verified, PostbacCAS sends those materials to your chosen post-bacc programs.
The following materials are required when applying through either method:
Official Transcripts from all Previous College Work
Transcripts from all colleges and universities attended. Official transcripts must be sent directly from the registrar to the program. Electronic transcripts should be forwarded to email@example.com. For transcript questions, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Non-United States course work transcript verification
If the transcript you submit for consideration is from a college or university outside the United States, a course by course transcript evaluation is also required. Evaluations will be accepted from World Education Services (WES) or another member institution of the National Association of Credential Evaluation Services (NACES).
Reflect on why you believe your target profession is the right career for you. You should describe experiences that have informed or confirmed that goal and how they contributed to your decision to pursue a career in healthcare in 5000 characters or fewer.
Two Letters of Recommendation
Two letters of recommendation are required from academic references. Letters can be submitted through the online application or mailed by the recommender.
Special Consideration Statement (Optional)
Applicants may submit a statement of 500 words or fewer describing any special considerations relating to your application.
For applicants applying directly to our program a $35 application fee is required. Those applying through PostBacCAS will pay the fees required by PostBacCAS which include an initial application fee and a charge for each post-bacc program designated to receive your materials.
The $35 application fee is waived for all WashU staff.
