Montclair State University has articulation agreements with other universities that allow students to complete a BS in Biology at Montclair State and an advanced degree elsewhere, usually in a shorter amount of time than if the two degrees were completed independently. The application process, schedule, selection criteria, and other aspects of the articulation agreements vary from program to program, and are available on the program websites. There is also the Pre-Health Advisory Committee made up of faculty from various departments that can assist you further.

Montclair State University no longer participates in the joint 7-year BS/MD program administered by Rutgers University, which required students to complete their undergraduate degree in 3 years. We encourage all Montclair State University students who are interested in pursuing medical, dental, optometry, and veterinary degrees and other health professions credentials to work closely with our faculty and professional advisors over the full course of your undergraduate program to identify professional program options and prepare the strongest possible applications.
