Prerequisite Coursework & Transfer Credit

Prerequisite Coursework

Prerequisites for biostatistics are single and multivariable college-level calculus. The epidemiology prerequisite is single variable college-level calculus.  Under special circumstances, an applicant may be admitted to the program under the provision that all prerequisites are satisfied before beginning the program.

Transfer of Credit

In exceptional circumstances, courses from other accredited institutions may be evaluated for credit transfer to contribute to advance standing at discretion of the program.  Equivalency is determined by the appropriate faculty in the program. At least 33 percent of semester credit hours applied toward a Medical University degree must be earned through instruction by the University. Regardless of the number of credits awarded, students are expected to complete a core of courses at the Medical University of South Carolina.
