Pre-Allied Health

Allied Health Foundations

This program provides an efficient path for students who wish to apply to the School of Allied Health Professions at Loma Linda University for a baccalaureate degree in one of several allied health fields. A student at Southwestern will complete the 64-hr Associate of Science degree. The requirements for this degree are found in the Undergraduate Bulletin.

With the guidance of an Allied Health advisor, the student will complete the courses that meet the entrance requirements of the program to which they seek entrance. The web portal will provide each student and advisor with a detailed degree audit of the admissions requirements for the particular program. A cumulative grade point average of at least 3.0 or even higher is necessary in order to be competitive for acceptance at most clinical allied health programs at Loma Linda. No grade lower than a “C” can be transferred to another program.

Information on various allied health careers can be found at Loma Linda University’s School of Allied Health Professions website.
