Completion of required courses does not guarantee admission to the fourth year clinical courses. To be eligible for enrollment in these courses, a student must:
Have a minimum grade point average of 2.5 on a 4.0 scale when applying for the clinical year.
Gain acceptance into an affiliate hospital program. In general, acceptance is based on academic performance, letters of recommendation, and a personal interview. Each clinical program has an admissions committee that is responsible for decisions regarding acceptance to the program.
Fourth-year students accepted to the clinical courses register as full-time ISU students and, upon successful completion of the 12-month program, receive the 32-34 credit hours that are required for completion of the bachelor of science degree.
