AUC Medical School Admissions Requirements

Academic requirements, prerequisite courses, and other factors


Qualifying for Medical School

AUC's Admissions Committee considers multiple factors when reviewing an applicant for consideration. These include performance in undergraduate coursework, your score on the Medical College Admissions Test (MCAT), as well as intellectual and social maturity, critical judgment, adaptability, volunteer work, and life experiences, and graduate school performance (if applicable).

Evaluation for admission is conducted on an individual basis. We encourage all applicants to speak with a member of our admissions team  to discuss their opportunity to attend AUC, including the competitiveness of their MCAT scores, GPA and other requirements.
