Admission Requirements

Barry University has a rolling admissions process, and applicants are accepted on an ongoing basis.

However, it is best that completed applications are received by January 1st for fall consideration.

Students are admitted to the program only once a year in the fall semester. To be considered for admissions into the program you must have completed all of the 59 hours of college prerequisites prior to admittance into the Cardiovascular Perfusion Program.

Candidates are selected for admission on the basis of high promise for program completion. There are a limited number of spots, so admission to the cardiovascular perfusion program is highly competitive. As a result, it is possible to meet minimum admission requirements but not be selected for a personal interview or admission to the program.

For more information on the application process and a full description of admission requirements, visit the cardiovascular perfusion section of the undergraduate catalog, or contact an admissions counselor using your myBarry account.

As a prospective student, you should assess your capacity and suitability for becoming a Cardiovascular Perfusionist. This is a highly intense, 21 – month program requiring both personal and financial sacrifices. The program demands a high degree of integrity, self-sufficiency, motivation, discipline and time management skills.

Additional Admission Criteria Requirements

  1. A completed application and fee
  2. Official college transcripts from all schools attended
  3. Three reference letters from individuals who have known you in an educational or working environment.
  4. Letter documenting the observation of an open heart surgical procedure signed and dated by a Cardiovascular Perfusionist.
