Q: Can International students apply to the IU School of Medicine, MD program?
A: All International applicants (including Canadian citizens) must complete a minimum of 90 credit hours (includes prerequisite coursework) from an accredited U.S. or Canadian institution and have a permanent resident visa prior to application to be eligible for consideration into the MD program. However, most applicants will matriculate with a B.A. or B.S. degree.
Q: How can I check the status of my application or contact the Office of Admissions?
A: Current applicants may check the status of their application by following the instructions provided in the Supplemental packet to access the Applicant Portal. If your questions are not addressed, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Office of Admissions will not confirm receipt of materials but will notify you if materials are missing. In the interim, you should check the Applicant Portal regularly to check the status of your application. Please allow 6-8 weeks for materials to be received, processed, and updated in the portal.
Q: Will my request to be placed at a specific regional campus be granted?
A: While we would like to honor all requests we cannot. Applicants accepted to IUSM will be sent campus preference information via email. Upon receipt applicants will need to rank their preferences in the Applicant Portal. Assignments will begin in April. Information about the campuses may be reviewed at http://admissions.medicine.iu.edu/medicalcenteroverview/. We encourage you to make contact with campus directors to obtain additional information before ranking your preferences.
Students who complete their first two years at a regional campus that has a fully implemented clinical clerkship program will be given first priority to complete their entire third year at that site. All students regardless of campus who elect to complete their third year in Indianapolis will be required to take some clerkships outside Indianapolis.
Q: How much does it cost to attend the Indiana University School of Medicine?
A:In-state $33,682.00 and out-of state $55,314.00. Amounts reflect annual rates for the 2016-2017 academic year. Additional details are available at IUSM Financial Aid Office.
Q: Can I select where I would like to interview?
A:While most interviews take place on the Indianapolis campus, students will have the option to interview at IUSM-Ft. Wayne, Muncie, Northwest (Gary), Terre Haute, or South Bend. If you elect to interview at one of the locations stated above, you will not be eligible to change your interview location. Therefore, we encourage you to select your interview location carefully.
