Academic Requirements

A baccalaureate degree is required. Described below are the specific course requirements. Course work in these areas should be completed within the last six years and CLEP credit may not be used to satisfy these requirements. All required courses must be evaluated by traditional grading and not by a pass/fail system. Advanced placement credit in the required pre-requisite courses is accepted, however, the credit awarded must be stated on your transcript and AMCAS application.  Applicants are advised to take upper level undergraduate science courses if they received AP credit in the pre-requisite sciences.  

Prerequisite courses must be taken at accredited colleges or universities in the U.S. or Canada. Applicants who have graduated from foreign colleges must have completed a minimum of one full year of study in an American or Canadian college/university, prior to submitting their application.

MCAT Policy

All applicants are required to take the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT). Arrangements for taking the MCAT, requesting test reports, and information concerning administration, scoring and processing of the test should be directed to the MCAT office.

Selection of applicants for the medical school class entering in a given calendar year will be based, in part, on MCAT scores acquired during the previous three calendar years. Selection of alternates may include consideration of MCAT scores acquired in the same calendar year.

Early Decision/MCAT

MCAT results must be in the admissions office by 09/01 to be considered for early decision. We recommend that applicants schedule their MCAT exams in time for results to be in the admissions office by the deadline. Applicants must list on their AMCAS application the last date that they plan to take the MCAT. We will accept additional MCAT results for early decision applicants who are not accepted to the program who wish to be considered for the regular program.
