Medical School Admissions

A Note to 2021-2022 Applicants

In this time of uncertainty related to the impact of COVID-19, we realize that many of you are facing unexpected circumstances and may need to adjust your plans in preparation for the upcoming cycle.

We understand the challenges many of you are facing with MCAT testing availability and/or current coursework, including the potential shift to alternate grading systems or rubrics. While letter grades for coursework are preferred, we recognize the difficulty this may pose for many. As such, we will accept Pass/No Pass grading for Spring 2020, Fall 2020, Spring 2021 and Fall 2021 coursework. Our Admissions Committee assures that these unforeseen circumstances will be understood in the context of the current situation.

At this point, our timeline and requirements remain the same. Should adjustments be made, we will post notices on this website. If you have specific questions, as always, our team can be reached at com-admissions@musc.edu.
