The Office of Admissions would like to address the concerns of MD Program applicants regarding theCOVID-19 pandemic, which has caused unprecedented disruption to academic work. The College of Medicine is keenly aware of the many challenges that applicants have faced.
Please be advised of the following:
- The Admissions Committee will accept Pass/Fail, online, and courses not taken at an applicant’s “home school” without penalty to the applicant.
- Applicants will not be penalized for experiences they had planned to complete or participate in that were impacted by the COVID 19 pandemic.
For questions, please contact the Admissions Office by email at email@example.com.
Our website for applicants can give you current status information and is always available. Your ID and password are required.
Applications are accepted through AMCAS from June 1 through December 1. Completed applications are reviewed at the College of Medicine as they are received. It is best to apply as early as possible.
We will not consider the January 2023 MCAT as a basis for determining whether to invite candidates for an interview for the 2023 entering class. We will only consider MCATs from 2023 for special program students.
MCAT scores are good for a period of three years. MCAT scores from 2020 are the oldest MCAT scores accepted for entry with the 2023 first-year class.
After we receive your verified application from AMCAS, we will send you the link to the online secondary application via email. All applicants receive a link to the secondary. It can take up to four weeks after AMCAS verification to receive Drexel's link to the secondary application. Please contact us if you feel that the link to your secondary application has not reached you in a timely manner. Please make sure to check all spam/junk folders. Please retain your ID and password, which will be sent to you with the link for the secondary application.
