Most graduate and professional schools require an admission examination. These exams are NOT like the ACT or SAT, and the examination required varies by school and program.

Support from Dimensions  

Dimensions offers support for students preparing to take an admission examination, the most popular being the GRE and MCAT. Students can meet with the Associate Director of Dimensions to determine which exam to take, when to take the exam, materials and resources available to prepare, exam dates, and how to register for the exam. 

Scheduling Your Exam 

Most students planning to enroll in graduate and professional school following graduation will take their admission exam the summer following their junior year. Most applications for graduate and professional programs in healthcare are submitted late summer after junior year and early fall of the senior year.
