  • pass step one of the [USMLE] United States Medical Licensing Examination, prior to matriculation
  • submit a letter from the Dean or Associate Dean at the medical school [approving the transfer] and submit two (2) letters of recommendation from faculty instructors who taught you as a student, i.e., a total of three (3) letters of recommendation. These letters should be sent directly to the College of Medicine Admissions Office.
  • provide evidence of circumstances necessitating a transfer
  • appear for a personal interview

Transfer applications will be forwarded to eligible applicants via e-mail. The deadline for submitting a transfer application is April 1st.
