Rolling Admissions Cycle

The Master of Science in Medical Health Sciences program utilizes a rolling admissions cycle, which means applications are reviewed and decisions are rendered throughout the admissions cycle until the class is full.

Application Submission for Direct Applicants

To apply to the Master of Science in Medical Health Sciences program, candidates who have not previously applied to the College of Osteopathic Medicine must submit an application through the ApplyYourself system.  As part of the process, the following items will be needed:

  1. A non-refundable, $50.00 application fee (payable by credit card only).
  2. Unofficial transcripts from all schools attended.  Transcripts must show completion (or pending completion, prior to matriculation date) of the Bachelor's degree.  If accepted, official transcripts will be required prior to matriculation.
  3. Two letters of recommendation.  One must be an academic reference from a science professor from whom you earned a grade.  Letters from family members are not acceptable.  Letters of recommendation are used for admissions purposes only and do not become part of the official academic record. 

Application materials will be accepted up to the close of business on June 2nd, 2017 but applicants are advised to apply early.

Application Submission for Previous Applicants to the College of Osteopathic Medicine

Candidates who applied to the College of Osteopathic Medicine during the previous application cycle and submitted a supplemental application must submit an application through the ApplyYourself system but they are not required to pay an application fee nor are they required to submit additional letters of recommendation or transcripts.  Once all required sections of the ApplyYourself application have been completed, email the Office of Admissions (naisha.bible@tu.edu) to request that your AACOMAS application and letters be uploaded and appended to your ApplyYourself application and to request that your application fee be waived within the system.  Letters of recommendation are used for admissions purposes only and do not become part of the official academic record.

Application materials will be accepted up to the close of business on June 2nd, 2017 but applicants are advised to apply early.

Application Review and Decisions

When all application materials have been received, the file is forwarded to the Admissions Committee for review.  The Committee will determine whether the candidate is to be accepted, wait-listed, or denied.  Notifications will be made via email and/or US Mail within approximately three weeks of the submission of all required application materials.  Accepted candidates will be required to secure their seat in the cohort by returning a response form and required non-refundable deposit.
