Application and Procedures

Cabrini’s general-fees charge applied to the professional study year provides students with access to campus facilities and activities.

Although entrance requirements vary from one professional school to another, there are three general requirements requested by most of these schools that will enhance the strength of student applications:

  1. a science-related degree (e.g., Biology, Chemistry, Mathematics)
  2. a strong background in liberal arts education
  3. and involvement in a variety of related professional and social activities

Cabrini University, with its strong programs in the sciences, helps provide students with an excellent preparation for achieving their career goals in allied health fields.

In the cases of the programs in pharmacy, physical therapy and podiatry, Cabrini’s general fees charge is applied to the professional study year (prior to receipt of BS degree) and provides students with access to Cabrini campus facilities and activities.

This fee is in addition to the normal tuition/fees charged by the professional institution (Temple, Jefferson, Widener).

These articulation agreements could have specific qualifications, including GPA, MCAT/GRE, volunteer work, interview, recommendations, etc.
