How to apply

Applications are accepted 3 times per year, for January, May and September trimesters. Students can, apply online. fter the admissions office receives a complete application (application form and associated documents), the academic committee will process the application within ten (10) business days. The school of medicine and the Department of nursing require that applicants undergo an interview by faculty members before a final decision. While the academic committee will accept a copy of the transcript to conduct the student’s evaluation, an original transcript must be sent to the administration office before the student will be allowed to commence classes.

Deferral of Admission

Due to the limited number of positions that can be offered to prospective medical students, Georgetown American University School of Medicine expects that students accepted to the School of Medicine will enroll in the year in which they are accepted. Thus, prospective students should only apply if they anticipate being able to accept admission in the year offered. However, admitted students might request a one-year deferral of matriculation for a maximum of one (1) year under limited circumstances. The request must be submitted in writing to the Executive Director of Admissions by August 1 of the acceptance year. Examples of cases for which deferrals may be granted include:
  • Illness
  • Unanticipated family hardship
  • A meaningful educational opportunity
To activate the acceptance for admission in the subsequent academic year, the deferred student must accept their offer of acceptance during the application cycle for which they have submitted a deferred application. In addition, it is expected that the student will submit a statement of activities during the deferral year and official transcripts for any academic work attempted or completed since the commencement of the deferral year no later than August 1 of the matriculation year.

If the student does not activate their acceptance to Georgetown American University School of Medicine within the acceptance decision deadline, their acceptance will be withdrawn. If they wish to reapply, they must complete a new online application, including new supporting documents, and pay the required application processing fees. Reapplications will be competitive with all other applicants.
