Most Med, Dental, and Vet schools prefer the required courses to come from a 4-year institution. The student will need to check the school of interest for specifics on acceptance of two year college oronline courses.

I heard that schools do background checks as part of the admissions process. Do I need to disclose everything?

Yes. It is very important to disclose any information that may be pulled up in a background check. It is also important to check with Paul York, Student Life Specialist for Campus Conduct, regarding any infractions you may have received as a student.
