* This refers to the year you would begin attending as a full-time college student in residence after high-school graduation. This does not include any AP Credit or Ohio College Credit Plus work earned on or off campus prior to high school graduation.
 

Please note that the “Application Year to NEOMED” refers to the year you would apply for provisional admission to medical school at NEOMED. Successful candidates will earn a reserved seat in medical school via provisional admission contingent upon attaining minimum GPA/BCPM GPA and MCAT scores for promotion prior to NEOMED matriculation.

Admission Application Eligibility Guidelines

The following attributes are guidelines for Bacc./M.D. application eligibility:

  • U.S Citizens/U.S. Permanent Residents (latter must submit documentation of status during application process)
  •  Successful completion of college lab-based Biology I/II and lab-based General Chemistry I/II
  •  Sophomore academic standing and no greater than junior academic standing
  •  Minimum one year of academic residence as a matriculated student and current enrollment at the Partner institution. 
  • Competitive admission process with minimum application guidelines for consideration:
    •  High school GPA of at least 3.0 
    •  Minimum 21 on ACT or 1000 on SAT
  •  College GPA of at least 3.25


Admission to medical school via any application pathway is always a competitive admission process where the number of qualified applicants far exceeds the number of M.D. seats available. The minimum application eligibility guidelines listed above should in no way be considered as admission criteria for the program or advancement to the interview stage. Candidates are solely responsible for meeting all deadlines and submitting all completed credentials according to instructions and maintaining contact information for notices and updates in the official data sources. In general, application to medical school involves significant preparation and occurs over the course of several months. Interested candidates are encouraged to begin the application exploration process at least one year prior to the application deadline.

As publicly funded universities in the state of Ohio, preferential admission is given to Ohio residents.
