Clinical Embryology & Andrology Program Admissions Requirements

Candidates must have completed all undergraduate degree requirements and have been issued a bachelor’s degree prior to matriculating as an EVMS student. If the bachelor’s degree was issued by a U.S. college or university, as a general rule it should be from a regionally accredited institution. However, the program may grant exceptions on a case-by-case basis. Official transcripts from the awarding institution must specify the date upon which the degree was issued.

  • Have a cumulative grade point average of 2.75 (B-) or better. This requirement may be waived by the program directors based on experience or other factors.
  • Have successfully completed two semesters of college-level biology and chemistry.
  • Currently work or have worked in clinical IVF or basic reproductive research as a clinical embryologist, andrologist, nurse, physician or research scientist. This requirement may be waived by the program directors based on experience or other factors.
  • International students, or applicants whose native language is not English, must take the TOEFL and receive a score equal to or greater than 550 for the paper-based test, or 213 for the computer-based test, or 80 for the iBT exam.
