Special Programs

The Office of Enrollment Management has created special admission programs for applicants, who have MU-COM as a top choice for their medical education. Our Early Decision Program and Fast Track Programs have different requirements and deadlines so please read each program description carefully.

Early Decision Program

MU-COM has reserved 10 spots for the Early Decision Program (EDP) to identify highly qualified applicants who consider MU-COM as their first choice medical school. Those applicants who apply to MU-COM through the EDP are prohibited to apply to other medical schools until they have received their EDP admission decision. Those accepted in the EDP are expected to attend MU-COM and will have two weeks from date of admission to submit their deposits.

Program Requirements:

  • Minimum 3.70 cumulative GPA
  • Minimum 3.50 science GPA
  • Minimum 28 cumulative MCAT score (10 minimum biology score) or a 505 on the 2015 MCAT
  • Letter of intent stating MU-COM is first choice
  • Indicate their intentions of applying to the EDP on supplemental application
  • Meet general application requirements

    Applicants who do not qualify for the EDP are encouraged to apply through the regular admission process.

Important EDP Dates:

* Applicants should allow at least 2-4 weeks for AACOMAS to verify transcripts and other application materials.
