Application Process

Classes begin in early August. Admission for spring semester is not available.

Applications for admission to the 2021-2022 academic year open July 1, 2020. After you have read the instructions below, click HERE to begin your application. 

Admission occurs on a rolling basis beginning in September 2020 and continuing until the class is filled. Therefore, students are encouraged to complete and submit their applications as early as possible. The deadline for complete application submission is June 1, 2021. This is also the deadline for receipt of official test scores. 

Visit the Program Prerequisites page for specific admissions criteria. Materials needed for a complete application are as follows:

  • Personal statement - A one-page original composition that highlights your strengths as an applicant, motivation for this program, leadership and service record, etc. This is listed as the "application essay" in the online application portal. 
  • Standardized test score(s) - Official GRE, MCAT, and/or DAT test scores
Instructions for test score submission.

To send DAT scores: Log in to your ADA DAT testing account. Please select the University of Mississippi School of Dentistry as your school. The SGSHS admission officer has access to the School of Dentistry’s account to retrieve the official DAT score.

To send GRE scores: The GRE code for UMMC is 1857. 

To send MCAT scores: Log in to your MCAT testing account. Access your score you’d like to send. Use the "Click and Print an Official Report" option to download a PDF of you score. Email the score to Ivory Stuckey, istuckey@umc.edu. The report will have a 16 digit verification code and your AAMC ID number which can be used by your admission officer to verify the score’s authenticity.














  • Transcript(s) - Official transcript(s) must document a B.S. or B.A. degree. Official transcripts documenting ALL previous undergraduate and graduate coursework must be submitted to the University of Mississippi Medical Center Office of Enrollment Management. 

Students may apply prior to receiving their bachelor's degree. In those cases, a partial transcript reflecting previous undergraduate coursework should be submitted. Based on that, conditional admission may be granted. However, full admission will not be conferred until the complete undergraduate transcript is received.

Instructions for sending transcripts

If the sending school uses Escripts/Credentials, then official transcripts should be sent to “UMMC All Admissions”.

If the sending school uses another electronic transcript service that requires an email address, official transcript should be sent to Ivory Stuckey, istuckey@umc.edu.

If the sending school will mail the official transcript, it should be mailed to: Office of Enrollment Management,University of Mississippi Medical Center, 2500 N. State St, Jackson, MS 39216

If you have applied to another UMMC school (School of Dentistry, School of Medicine, etc.) within the last year and you wish to use the same transcripts and official test scores submitted for that application in your application to the M.S. in Biomedical Sciences program, those documents will automatically be transferred upon submission of your application.

Ivory Stuckey-Okereke is your admission officer in the Office of Enrollment Management. Submit questions regarding receipt of official transcripts and test scores to Ms. Stuckey (istuckey@umc.edu).
