Pre-Med and Health Science Center

Pre-health advisors will work with you to discuss your degree options and help you plan your prerequisite coursework.  In addition, pre-health advisors are knowledgeable in the professional preparation, including extracurricular experiences, leadership, service, and health-care exposure, that medical programs value.  We will challenge you to develop a strong portfolio of engagement while maintaining the high standards of academic excellence that you need to compete in the admissions process.

GPA Calculator


Currently the best way to assess your overall and BCPM (BIO/CHM/PHY/MAT) GPA as it will be viewed by medical schools requires manual computation. You can use the instructions in the link below to predict the AMCAS conversion of your GPA.  The GPA calculator on the WSU Records and Registration site can also help you make a quick prediction during the process of self-evaluation (tip: add up and enter the number of credits you have earned of each grade (A, A-, etc.) instead of one at a time).
