Need Just One Science Course, Not a Degree? We Can Do That!

Do you need just one or two science courses? Perhaps you already have a bachelor’s degree but need an anatomy course to get into medical school. Or maybe your boss at the hospital wants you to take a brush-up course in medical terminology for that promotion. 

The great thing about National University of Health Sciences is that you don’t have to enroll in its B.S. degree program if you only need one or two undergraduate courses. NUHS offers both a “student at large” and prerequisite program that allow you to earn just the credits you need — even if it’s just one course.


Choosing a National University science course is often a better alternative to a community college or online program.  The courses are often priced the same, but the campus and parking are more convenient and classes start three times per year with plenty of openings.  You’ll learn in actual medical school facilities, often from professionals in the field: This gives you an edge when taking what you learn to graduate school or the workplace. National University’s student body is also a very high caliber since the majority of those enrolled are preparing for graduate degrees.

“One advantage to applying for our prerequisite program versus our student at large program,” says Deb Cascio, NUHS undergraduate coordinator, “is that you can then qualify for discounted tuition if you also apply to one of our first professional degree programs.”

If you need just one or two college level science courses, of if you are an employer in a science or health industry and are looking for an excellent resource for employee education, call Deb Cascio at 630-889-6577 or email [email protected] for more information on which enrollment track is right for you.
