Students must provide evidence of graduation from all degree-granting institutions that were ongoing at the time of admission. Please request that your final official transcript from the degree-granting institution be sent to Medical Student Admissions.
LCME mandates that all medical schools ensure that any student accepted for admission demonstrates academic achievements, completion of relevant prior coursework, and other relevant characteristics comparable to those of the medical students in the class that they join.
Additionally, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) guidelines state that transcripts from previously attended institutions are a necessary component of a student's academic record.
