Application Process

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

Applications for admission to the 2023-2024 academic year open July 1, 2022. After you have read the instructions below, click HERE to begin your application. 

Admission occurs on a rolling basis beginning in December 2022 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, 2023.  

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 to complete this program, leadership and service record, etc. This statement is listed as the "application essay" in the online application portal. 
  • 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 Parchment, 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 Lauren Nichols, lnichols3@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 transcript(s) 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.

Lauren Nichols is your admission officer in the Office of Enrollment Management. Submit questions regarding receipt of official transcripts to Ms. Nichols (lnichols3@umc.edu ).
