How to Apply

Thank you for your interest in the University of Vermont College of Medicine. The admissions staff understands that the medical school application process can be a very long and stressful one. It is our goal to make applying to UVM as user friendly as possible.

The medical school application process is very competitive. Each year UVM receives more than 5,000 applications for approximately 114 seats. We can only review your application file after having received all supporting documentation, so you are urged to apply as early as possible.

We encourage you to read all application materials, requirements and instructions carefully so as not to delay the processing of your application. Please note that it may take from several weeks to a few months after your file is complete to be reviewed and a final decision rendered.

Steps for Applying to UVM COM

  1. Review all requirements you must meet to apply to UVM, including the letters of recommendation requirement
  2. Submit your AMCAS Application with all required documentation (letters of recommendation, required course work, MCAT scores) by deadline via the AMCAS website
  3. You will receive an email message on how to access the UVM COM Supplemental Application via the Online Applicant Center
  4. Complete and submit your Supplemental Application with your $95 application fee*

The deadline for receipt of the supplemental application and all supporting materials for the M.D. program is December 23. Please note that the Office of Admissions will be closed for winter break beginning at noon on December 24 through January 2, 2014.

It is the responsibility of the applicant to ensure that all materials are received by the deadline as extensions cannot be granted.
