Application Process

Effective October 1, 2017, the Medical Master’s program is now participating in the Post-Baccalaureate Centralized Application Service (PostBacCAS).

Complete and submit the online application along with the $130 application fee no later than June 30 for the fall semester. Admission offers are awarded on a rolling basis as completed applications are reviewed. Application fees are non-refundable, so please check the minimum qualifications before submitting your application. Feel free to call the staff and discuss your credentials if you have questions.

You will be required to submit a secondary application for our program. There is no application fee for the secondary application and you can start it as soon as you have been issued an ID through PostBacCAS.
