To qualify for the M.S. in Precision Medicine degree, students must:

  1. Satisfactorily complete all courses with a minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.5.

Timeframe for Completion of Curriculum

The curriculum can be completed in as little as two years. It is expected that most students will complete their dual degree M.S. in Precision Medicine within the timeframe of their primary degree program, which is typically 3 to 4 years. Students may exceed this timeframe, if necessary, but must satisfactorily complete the full curriculum within six years of the starting date of their Precision Medicine Program in order to be awarded the degree.


M.S. degrees will be conferred upon candidates who have completed all academic requirements, satisfied all financial obligations, and completed all graduation requirements for the degree. Degrees will be awarded at the commencement for the College of Graduate Studies if all requirements have been met at that time.
