Applying to the MS Program

The application period for the 2016–17 academic year is now closed.

If you submitted your application by the deadline of May 20, 2016, your application will be reviewed provided that all supporting documentation, including MCAT scores, are received by June 1, 2016. Please verify that your supporting documentation is complete by visiting the Graduate School application portal. Click on "Application Status". Once your supporting documents have been uploaded, please notify Jeannie Cummins by email. We will then confirm by email that your application is complete and ready for review.

We currently accept scores from either the old or new MCAT test. Applicants should keep in mind that very few medical schools will accept MCAT scores that are more than three years old and, although we will consider older MCAT scores, the age of the scores may influence the perceived strength of the overall application.

Supporting documents may be uploaded with your online application or emailed to Jeannie Cummins. We do accept letters of recommendation or committee letters via a letter service (i.e., Interfolio or from your committee advisor) if not uploaded by individual recommenders. If you choose to send any required documents via US mail, please send to:

Jeannie Cummins, Program Manager
Molecular and Cellular Physiology
University of Cincinnati College of Medicine

Forwarding MCAT scores after completing your online application:

If you apply before you have taken the MCAT or are submitting updated MCAT scores, send via email to Jeannie Cummins the following:

  • A pdf copy of your MCAT transcript generated as directed at the AAMC/MCAT website
  • Your 16-digit alpha numeric verification code (located on the official score report)
  • Your AAMC ID #
