Getting In

Each professional school has its own specific course requirements for its program, all of which can be fulfilled at Dordt College. Nine out of 10 Dordt graduates get into medical school on their first application. Nationally only one in three are accepted. Many of our graduates have been accepted at regional medical schools such as the University of Iowa, University of Minnesota (both Twin Cities and Duluth), Des Moines University, and the University of South Dakota. Others have gone to universities in Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Wisconsin, Alberta, and Ontario.
