Application Process

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

Applications for admission to the 2020-21 academic year open July 1, 2019.

Admission occurs on a rolling basis beginning in September 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, 2020.

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

  • Standardized test score(s) - Official GRE, MCAT, and/or DAT test scores

The GRE code for UMMC is 1857

  • 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 UMMC Registrar. 

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.

  • 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. 
If you have been recommended to this program by an admissions officer in either the UMMC School of Dentistry or School of Medicine, an email from them supporting your application can be sent to Dr. Hanna Broome.
