Acceptance to this medical school is conditional; the admissions committee may rescind an offer of acceptance at any time before matriculation if an applicant fails to maintain expectations upon which the acceptance was based. Examples include, but are not limited to, a significant decline in academic performance, failure to complete prerequisites or other course work and degrees in progress, patterns of unprofessional behavior and incidents discovered in a criminal background check.
Upon notification of acceptance into the UMMC School of Medicine (SOM), an applicant will be provided online access to several areas of information. Forms must be read, completed and submitted electronically within 15 days after the date of notification of acceptance. Failure to do so within the specified period may automatically void the offer of acceptance.
While more than 85% of the applicants who are offered an acceptance to this medical school ultimately enroll at this medical school, applicants are encouraged to find the medical school that best suits their vision and needs. Therefore, submitting a statement of acceptance does not preclude considering offers from other medical schools. However, in consideration of logistics (moving, housing and financial aid) that alternates must contend with, applicants accepted to this medical school should not hold multiple acceptances beyond May 15 at which time they will be contacted and asked to either withdraw other acceptances or relinquish their acceptance to this school.
Accepted applicants are encouraged to consult the UMMC SOM Student Affairs and SOM Office of Medical Education web pages for useful information.
