Before enrolling at SCO, you must complete at least 90 semester hours or 135 quarter hours at an accredited undergraduate institution. You can apply to SCO after two full years of undergraduate work if you are eligible to continue at the last school you attended.
Candidates must complete all prerequisite courses prior to enrollment at SCO. You may apply while you are in the process of completing the required courses. Outstanding prerequisite courses will not hinder the interview selection process.
See a list of prerequisite courses.
Preference will be given to applicants with baccalaureate or higher degrees. All applicants must be in good academic standing.
Because the science prerequisite courses provide a significant foundation for the SCO curriculum, as well as the OAT, students who have not been enrolled in any science courses or as a full-time student for two years or longer are encouraged to contact the Admissions Office to discuss their situation.
