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, it should be from a regionally accredited institution. Official transcripts from the awarding institution must specify the date upon which the degree was issued.

Applicants must have a bachelor's degree from an accredited university with an undergraduate cumulative grade point average of 3.0 or higher (on a 4-point scale) and must have completed the following:

Non-Degree Status Student

Non-degree status is granted only under unusual circumstances in which a student may be granted a conditional waiver if cancellation of course offering by an outside institution prevents the student from completing a required prerequisite course in a timely fashion.  In such instances, the student can be granted a “non-degree seeking” status into the program.  The student will not be eligible for financial aid and will only be converted to a “degree-eligible” student at the time they successfully complete the required prerequisite coursework.
