Application to the Professional Program

Application to the junior and senior year of the Forestry program, also known as the Professional Program, occurs the spring of a student’s sophomore year, after students have completed the required pre-professional coursework (either at NAU or by approved transfer credit). Full details on forestry degree requirements and the application process can be found in the Forestry Advising Packet.

Pre-Professional GPA Calculator

Grade management is an essential tool when evaluating your GPA readiness for the Professional program. Students apply to the School of Forestry Professional Program the spring of their sophomore year. The application process is where the students submit the Professional Forestry Program application to the Student Services Coordinator, ensuring sure they have taken all the required Pre-professional Coursework with a grade a C or higher, and ensures they have a minimum GPA of 2.75. With these two requirements met, the student is ready to begin Semester A of the Professional Program the fall of their junior year. Regular advising with the Student Services Coordinator each semester is critical and helps students stay on track with their grades and course progression so the application process is a smooth transition.
