Students must complete the core courses (those with a MED prefix) with a minimum of a “C” to graduate.  Evening students must understand that while all coursework may be completed during the evening hours, the 180-hour externship (MED290) must usually be completed during the day.

At our Jefferson City campus, check with an Admissions Representative for availability of evening classes.  Students enrolled in evening programs normally take one to two terms longer to complete than the daytime programs based on course availability.
