- Completion of no less than 75 percent of the credits required for a baccalaureate degree from a regionally accredited college or university. It is recommended that the applicant has an overall GPA of at least 3.0 and a minimum 3.0 science GPA. Because of the demanding nature of the program, it is expected that most students will have cumulative and science GPAs of at least 3.2. Most candidates accepted for admission have earned a baccalaureate degree prior to matriculation. Students who have attended a foreign college must have their grades certified by an LMU-DCOM approved vendor.
