Applications

The School of Medicine participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Applications are submitted electronically and can be accessed at the AMCAS website. Applications are available online after May 1 and may be submitted after June 1. The deadline for submission of applications to AMCAS is December 1.

Following receipt and individual screening of the initial AMCAS application in the School of Medicine Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services, supplemental application materials (including evaluations and a nonrefundable $95 processing fee) will be requested from all competitive applicants.  As a matter of policy, the School of Medicine can accept applications only from those individuals who are currently citizens of the United States or who are permitted by the Immigration and Naturalization Service to reside permanently in the United States. Interviews on the School of Medicine campus are at the invitation of the Admissions Committee and are a required part of the admissions process for all applicants.

The deadline date of December 1 refers only to the date by which the basic application materials must be received at the AMCAS office; January 15 is the deadline date for receipt of all supplementary application materials in the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services. It is in the best interest of the applicant to submit the completed application as early in the application/admissions process as possible.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all application materials are received in the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services by the deadline date. No application will be considered until all application materials have been received. The application process is highly competitive. Please consider the strength of your application in the decision to apply.

Transfer

The Admissions Committee will consider applications for transfer into the second-year and third-year medical school classes contingent upon the availability of positions. All applicants for transfer must be currently enrolled and in good standing in a medical school accredited by the Liaison Committee on Medical Education and meet the prerequisite requirements in order to receive consideration. All acceptances into the third year are conditional on verification by the National Board of Medical Examiners of an overall, average passing score on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination taken by June 30 following completion of the second year.

Applications for transfer are available after January 1. All application materials (including supplemental information and a nonrefundable $95 processing fee) must be received in the Office of Admissions and Enrollment Services by April 1. Supplemental information includes an essay on the reasons for transfer, letters of evaluation from the dean and two faculty members of the medical school in which the applicant for transfer is currently enrolled, and verification of MCAT scores. Requests for MCAT score verification should be addressed to:

Section for the MCAT
Association of American Medical Colleges
