The University of Cincinnati College of Medicine requires all students to apply through the American Medical College Application Service (AMCAS). Upon receipt of the AMCAS application, they are directed to the UC College of Medicine website to complete the UC On-Line Secondary Application.
An application is complete when the Admissions Office has received the following:
All application materials, including MCAT scores, must be received by the regular admissions due date. Incomplete or late applications will not be reviewed.
Interviews are by the invitation of the Committee on Admissions and are arranged at a mutually convenient time. The Committee selects approximately 650 applicants to interview. After a student is invited for an interview, they must complete a Questionnaire for Interview Confirmation (QIC) located on the MedOneStop Portal status page. The questionnaire gives the student an opportunity to address additional personal information and any unique circumstances.
The College of Medicine is committed to a holistic review of applicants at every stage of the admissions process. The Admissions Committee does not use a formula as a basis for any interview or admissions decision, and all applicants receive consideration.
The Committee on Admissions reviews the interview report along with letters of recommendation and all other materials supporting the application.
To assess the applicant's readiness for medical school, the committee looks carefully at the following:
Decisions are communicated as soon as possible and are available to view on an applicant's MedOneStop Portal. Students are notified if they are accepted, placed on the Alternate List or denied acceptance within four to six weeks after interviewing.
Accepted applicants are required to respond to the Office of Admissions offer within two weeks. The University of Cincinnati abides by the AAMC Traffic Rules and students may hold multiple acceptances until the stated date per the AAMC. After that date, students may only hold one medical school acceptance.
Applicants may check their application status by following the below directions:
Step 1: Go to the MedOneStop Portal log-in with your MedOneStop Username and Password.

Letters of recommendation must be processed through AMCAS. Please visit the AMCAS website for information on how recommenders should submit their materials.
Once AMCAS has submitted a letter to the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine, applicants are giving permission to the college to certify the document.
Letters of recommendation not processed through AMCAS and sent directly to the College of Medicine will not be considered. It is the responsibility of the applicant to inform recommenders of the proper protocol. View Frequently Asked Questions regarding Letters of Recommendation.
