COM Admissions Transfer Policy

Medical Students (M.D.)

The College of Medicine accepts transfer applications only from students in good standing at United States LCME-accredited medical schools. Acceptance is limited to students who have completed the second year and not yet started the third year, without any breaks. Students must have completed all preclinical coursework and passed Step 1 of the USMLE licensing exam. Opportunities for transfer are rare and are only approved by the Senior Associate Dean for Medical Education and the Associate Dean for Admissions.

Transfer applications are only accepted if transfer positions are available. Please call the Office of Admissions at 843-792-3283 between April 15 and May 15 of the year of desired transfer to determine whether or not any transfer positions are available. Transfer applications are not accepted if it has been determined by the Deans that there are no transfer positions available for that year.
