In order to be considered for full and unconditional admission* to the MIT program, applicants must meet the following requirements:
- Baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited (or equivalent) college or university

- Overall 3.0 undergraduate GPA or graduate coursework GPA (those not meeting these criteria may be admitted conditionally)
- Completion of all required pre-professional courses with a grade of C or higher in each

Students who preregister will be processed on the assumption that they will satisfactorily complete all coursework presently taken.
*Students not meeting these requirement will be considered for conditional admission. Saint Martin's University recognizes that while previous performance is a valuable indicator of potential success there are those who have demonstrated that potential in other ways than traditional academic performance.
