B.S. in Biology/M.D. Degree Program

Qualified students will be able to receive simultaneous admission to the College of Saint Elizabeth and St. George's University School of Medicine. If they maintain certain minimum academic standards as undergraduates, they'll be eligible to continue on to SGU to pursue postgraduate medical degrees.

Students interested in the new program must declare their intention when they apply to the College of Saint Elizabeth. The two institutions will conduct interviews with qualified applicants to determine whether to offer admission to the combined degree program.

Undergraduate students must maintain a cumulative grade point average of at least 3.4 and achieve an MCAT score within five points of the average for students who enrolled at St. George's the previous term to achieve full admission.

After students complete the agreed upon premedical curriculum and meet other standard requirements for admission to SGU, they will be eligible to spend their first two years of medical school in Grenada. Students will complete the next two years of clinical training at hospitals in the United Kingdom or the United States. They will be encouraged to return to New Jersey for their clinical rotations and residencies.

Preset Freshmen and Sophomore Pathways

To ensure that students begin and remain on track in terms of graduation and degree requirements, and to maximize student opportunities to add minors or second majors, and therefore increase their options after graduation, the College has designed the Preset Freshmen and Sophomore Pathways.

This curricular sequencing model, which outlines all the courses taken in the first two years, will allow students to complete 75% to 90% of their General Education requirements during just their freshman and sophomore years, as well as all foundational gateway and milestone courses, both in their intended major, and in other complementary majors and minors that they may want to consider.

Students will then be able to focus their junior and senior years almost entirely on their major, as well as on potential minors or second majors.

Simply put, this curricular sequencing model allows students to get the most out of their undergraduate education at CSE.
