Health Professional School Linkage Programs

Linkage Programs are formal agreements between  various health professional schools and  California State University Fullerton (CSUF), that offer students special consideration for admission. Linkage programs accelerate the application process , and  eliminate the need to apply to multiple schools ; this significantly reduces the cost of the application process since travel expenses for interviews can cost up to $5,000 each application cycle. Pre-Health Professions Certificate students have the added benefit of saving time by skipping the "glide year", which is the  year between completing the program and entering a professional school that is used to prepare professional school applications .

Please review the current linkages for specific information regarding eligibility, requirements, benefits, and the application process.
