MED SCHOOL Admissions FAQS

MED SCHOOL REQUIREMENTS

AUC's Admissions Committee considers many factors when reviewing a med school applicant for consideration. Medical school admissions requirements include undergraduate performance and MCAT score, as well as intellectual and social maturity, critical judgment, adaptability, volunteer work, and life experiences, and graduate school performance (if applicable). Our goal is to provide you with all of the information and guidance you need to explore AUC as a medical school option and make the best decision to suit your career and life objectives.

MEDICAL SCHOOL ADMISSION PROCESS

The medical school admission process varies from school to school. At AUC, you start by completing an application online. Once you have completed your online application, you will be assigned an admissions ambassador who will reach out for supporting documents. Learn more about the admission process, start date, and deadlines for the AUC School of Medicine.

At AUC, we have no no single medical school admission timeline because we operate under a rolling admissions policy. This means we offer three start dates—September, January, and May. This gives you the freedom to start medical school when it's right for you. Admissions deadlines are four weeks before the start of each semester.

The AUC Admissions team recommends starting your application as early as possible. Candidates should apply to AUC at least one month prior to their desired start time.

AUC looks at both overall GPA and science GPA. AUC’s Admissions Committee considers many factors when reviewing an applicant for consideration - GPA is only one of them. Depending on the circumstances, a student with a lower GPA may be accepted, especially if the student excels in other aspects of the medical school application evaluation. 


AUC reserves the right to change our medical school admissions requirements, application procedures, and admissions policies at any time, without prior notice.

*AUC's medical school facilities and curriculum are accredited through 2027 by the Accreditation Commission on Colleges of Medicine (ACCM), which is the accreditor used by the country of St. Maarten.
