Academic Requirements

COVID-19 Updates

The NJMS Admissions Committee understands and is very sensitive to the challenges our applicants are facing as we all manage the COVID-19 pandemic. Most importantly is that we hope you are well and safe. The Committee has modified our policy and will accept “PASS” grades for any courses completed this spring or summer term. In addition, with MCAT dates in flux, we will evaluate each applicant’s personal situation with a one-by-one approach.
