pregnancy and gross anatomy

I need to dissect some cadavers in the next few months as a pre-requisite for school, but I may be pregnant. What are my options?

I am asking this question for my sister. She says:
I have just sent in my applications to two schools in Boston for a masters in occupational therapy. I have one more prerequisite for each school. School 1 requires a bio class with a lab. School 2 requires Gross human anatomy. I am signed up for both classes this semester.
Problem: I may be pregnant (if not, I hope to be soon). I just found out that pregnant students are not allowed to take either of the above classes because they involve human dissection. I want to get these prerequisites out of the way as soon as possible so that I can start grad school in the fall (if accepted).
I have called the admissions offices at both schools and am waiting to hear back from them. What should I say when I speak to them? Are there computer based dissection that I can take that are likely to be accepted as pre-recs? Other ideas that I haven't thought of?
