Professional schools maintain rigid admission policies, and admission is highly competitive. Qualified HSU students have been most successful in gaining admission to these schools.

A student interested in these specialized fields, in consultation with the appropriate advisor, is responsible for becoming acquainted with the admissions requirements of the school of his/her choice so that a program may be planned to meet those requirements.
