We recognize that this is a challenging time to organize and submit your applications for our Masters Programs and the related scholars programs. Please rest assured that our online Grad Portal application system is fully operational and review of applications by our faculty and staff is proceeding normally.

Supporting documents

Since postal mail and courier service delivery to our central admissions office has been curtailed, please upload all of your application supporting documents for the Fall 2021 semester through the Grad Portal. This can include unofficial transcripts and test scores, which are sufficient for review of applications and admissions decisions (original documents will be required prior to matriculation). Direct upload of application materials will ensure the quickest review and response, since admissions decisions are made on a rolling basis. Please read the application insturctions carefully, before you proceed to the Grad Portal.

Letters of recommendation

In order for your writer(s) to receive the Grad Portal upload link, you must enter their email address on the application where asked. We accept committee letters, Interfolio and Health Professional letters.

Standardized test

Applications to our program require one of the graduate admissions tests (GRE, MCAT, DAT or National Boards Part 1), which are required to be submitted. While we are happy to evaluate applicants based on previously taken MCAT or DAT scores, if you have not already taken one of these we generally recommend that you take the GRE and defer the professional school examinations until you are ready to apply to medical or dental school. One option may be At-home GRE testing (see: Nevertheless, we recognize that some applicants may still be waiting to take one of these tests, and if specifically requested we can consider an application without a standardized test score. However, such admissions are only offered to students with very strong undergraduate records.
