Office of Admissions


(3/27) Given the impact of the current outbreak on grading for the spring 2020 semester, the University of Maryland School of Medicine is adapting by accepting online courses, and will accept Pass/Fail grading. In the event that your institution is providing a letter grading option for this semester, we highly encourage you to opt in to receive letter grades for your prerequisite courses, as preference will be given to letter grades when this option is available.

We are aware that some MCAT dates have been canceled, and are actively considering how this will affect the application timeline. At this time, our deadlines as they are listed in the MSAR have not changed, however we will continue to monitor this situation and will remain flexible should any changes be needed. Please know any modifications to our application timeline will be updated here on our website, and on the MSAR.

(3/26) Staff members within the Office of Admissions are currently working from home. To contact our office, please email and/or call 410-706-7478. This message will be removed when the staff has returned to the office.

Through innovative identification, recruitment and development programs, the School of Medicine has become recognized for the rich diversity of its student body. The Committee on Admissions has the daunting yet important job of selecting an outstanding entering freshman class each year from a bright, dedicated and diverse pool of applicants. The Committee will admit only those individuals who demonstrate the intellectual curiosity necessary for a lifetime of learning and who the Committee believes will maintain the highest standards of ethical and professional conduct.
