Students must apply for formal admission to the MIT program before or during the semester in which they complete the pre-professional sequence of courses required for program admission.

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
  • Passing score on all three tests of the WEST-B.
  • Overall 3.0 undergraduate GPA or graduate coursework GPA (those not meeting these criteria may be admitted conditionally).
  • Graduate Record Examination (GRE) combined verbal and quantitative score of at least 291 (new version) or 850 (old version) or Miller Analogies Test (MAT) score of at least 386. Scores may not be more than 5 years old
  • Completion of all required pre-professional courses with a grade of C or higher in each (below)
ENG 101 College writing I
ENG 102 College writing II
SPH 106 Public address
PSY 101 Introduction to psychology
MTH 100 Math course above intermediate algebra
Natural science, with lab (elementary)
U.S. history (elementary)
World history (elementary)
Students who preregister will be processed on the assumption that they will satisfactorily complete all coursework presently taken.

  • International students must submit proof of English proficiency in one of two ways:

    1) An undergraduate degree from a U.S. institution where the English is the language of instruction.


    2) An official Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) or International English Language Testing System (IELTS) score report (less than two years old) sent directly from the testing agency. For full admission we require a 79 IBT/213 CBT/550 PBT on the TOFEL or 6.5 band score on the academic version of the IELTS. Those students who do not meet the minimum required English proficiency but are otherwise admissible will be conditionally admitted through our ESL program. Saint Martin's University is the sole judge of an applicant's English proficiency.

*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.
