In addition to the nationally administered standardized Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), we evaluate your academic readiness based on your academic history and performance through your college-level courses.

Applicants must have taken the MCAT exam within four years of intended matriculation into medical school. To be considered for admission into the entering class of 2025, applicants must have taken the MCAT between January 2021 and September 2024. The college has established a minimum composite score of a 500 for the MCAT. All MCAT scores are visible to the Admissions Committee and are taken into consideration.

Applicants must have a cumulative science and overall GPA of 3.0 or better in either their undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, or graduate studies. As special circumstances arise, GPA calculations can be performed on a case-by-case basis.

A bachelor's (baccalaureate) degree is required for matriculation. All course work must be completed in an educational institution located in the U.S. or Canada and approved by a regional accrediting body. Students who have earned a degree outside the U.S. or Canada are required to complete a minimum of 60 credit hours in an educational institution located in the U.S. or Canada, including the required courses for admission. *Bachelor’s degree must be conferred no later than Sunday, June 13, 2025.

*This date relates to 2025 incoming students.
