Students who attend the university to prepare for admission into a professional school are provided with a variety of options for the programs they may pursue. Western is pleased with our record of preparing students to be viable candidates for professional school. We encourage students to make decisions early in their undergraduate career regarding preparation for professional school.

The majority of professional school programs now require a bachelor's degree for admission, although there are still some exceptions. In order for students to make excellent decisions regarding selection of undergraduate major and undergraduate prerequisite courses, the university advises students to contact the Director of Honors Advising and Pre-Professional Programs.
