All application materials must be complete and be received by the Health Sciences Admissions Office by November 1 for admission to the Program at the start of the summer semester in May. Applications received after November 1 are considered on a space available basis.
Outstanding applicants will be considered for early interview and may be offered acceptance for admissions at an earlier date.
Only those candidates with a completed application package on file, inclusive of all documentation, will be considered for admission. The admission criteria are evaluated as a composite package, serving as an indicator of predictive success in the program. Additional consideration may be given to those applicants who will practice in a rural and/or medically underserved community upon graduation. The Admissions Committee will rank all applicants as Accepted, Provisionally Accepted, Deferred, or Not Accepted. The Admissions Committee may consider applicants, on a space available basis, whose credentials include less than a 3.0 GPA, and who meet all other admission criteria. Such applicants may be granted Provisional Acceptance. Candidates accepted for Provisional Acceptance must attain a minimum GPA of 3.0 or better during the first semester. Admitting students to the program is an on-going process until all the slots are filled.
Upon the start of the program, accepted candidates are required to possess a notebook computer with specified software which conforms to criteria established by the Program.

Candidates should possess basic computer literacy skills, including the use of word-processing, Windows operating systems, electronic mail and navigation of Internet applications.
