Applications are accepted from citizens and permanent residents of the U.S. and citizens of Canada.  The Goucher post-bac program is open to men and women who have completed a bachelor’s degree at an accredited college or university and have a strong academic record but lack the majority of science courses needed for admission to medical school.  We strongly recommend that applicants have experience in mathematics at least through the pre-calculus level, as well as some experience in medical settings through volunteer or other work.  Applicants are evaluated based on their previous academic record, standardized test scores (SAT, ACT, or GRE), motivation, experience in medicine, and personal qualities.

Candidates are accepted on a rolling admissions basis.  Beginning in the fall, applications are processed as they are received for the next class, which begins in June.  There is no specific deadline, although the preferred financial aid deadline is March 15.  To ensure full consideration and to expedite the financial aid process, submit your application as early as possible.  Competitive applicants will be interviewed after we have received all of their application materials.

A complete application consists of:

1. Application form and $60 application fee;

2. Official transcripts from all high schools, undergraduate colleges, and any graduate institutions;

3. Scores from the SAT, ACT, or GRE;

4. Two letters of recommendation.
