The USC School of Medicine Greenville participates in the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). The AMCAS application opens up on May 2, 2018 with submissions beginning May 31, 2018. Submitted AMCAS applications will be reviewed when received for consideration of admission to the class entering in the fall of 2019. Applicants will be notified via email within two weeks of the school's receipt of a verified application from AMCAS. At this time, supplemental information (including the supplementary application and a $95.00 processing fee) is requested from selected applicants. At this time, the admissions committee screens all applications prior to inviting applicants to complete the supplemental application and submit the $95 processing fee. Our AMCAS application deadline is November 1st and our supplemental application is due on December 15.
Each application is screened for admissions criteria by staff members in the Office
of Admissions. Complete applications are forwarded to a subset of the admissions committee
for selection of applicants to be interviewed. Candidates invited to interview are
asked to respond as soon as possible with their acceptance of a specific interview
date. Interviews are scheduled weekly from September through March.
Offers of admission are made on a rolling basis after October 15. An applicant who is offered a position in the next entering class is required to accept or decline the offer within a two-week period. A $250 deposit must accompany acceptance of an offer of admission. Prior to April 30 the deposit is fully refundable upon receipt of written notification that an applicant wishes to withdraw from the entering class. The acceptance deposit is nonrefundable after April 30. An offer of admission is contingent upon satisfactory completion of all requirements and conditions of admission, including a satisfactory background check. Admitted applicants are required to submit official transcripts from every college and university attended to the Registrar prior to July 15. These transcripts are included in their USC School of Medicine Greenville academic records.
