It is the goal of the Texas A&M University College of Medicine to accept only those students who are guaranteed to complete the full four years of the curriculum based on citizenship or permanent resident status. Therefore, only applicants who are U.S. Citizens or U.S. Permanent Residents (Green Card bearers) will be considered for interview and admission.  Consideration may also be given to applicants who are in a timely process of gaining U.S. Permanent Residency and receive a Green Card by the time of medical school enrollment.  Interview, acceptance or enrollment is contingent upon providing this official documentation at the time of medical school application and before matriculation.

  • Students who are U. S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents and have completed coursework or earned a degree(s) at a university in a country other than the United States must have:
    • Completed at least 90 credit hours of college course work including the prerequisites* for medical school in a fully-accredited college or university in the United States; or
    • Completed a baccalaureate degree in a fully-accredited college or university in the United States.
  • Applicants with graduate degrees (Masters and/or Ph.D.) or professional degrees (M.D.) from a university in a country other than the United States are considered for admission only to the first-year medical class, regardless of the degrees held. They must also have satisfied the conditions above.
  • U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents who have successfully completed 90 credit hours or earned a baccalaureate degree at a fully-accredited Canadian college or university are considered for admission. Refer to the Texas Medical & Dental Schools Application Service (TMDSAS) website for details.
  • Undocumented students are not considered eligible for application.

*Graduate coursework does not satisfy the 90 credit hour requirement or the prerequisite coursework for medical school
