In light of COVID-19 restrictions, all current admissions deadlines currently stand as indicated below; however, we are dedicated to ensuring flexibility in our response to the challenges our applicants are facing during this pandemic. The Office of Admissions will continue to monitor the situation, should changes need to be made to our process. Please contact us if you run into difficulties meeting admissions requirements or with additional questions you may have.
March: Application is Available
The application process involves three separate applications: the UMKC General Application for Admission, the CASAA application, and the School of Medicine MSA Student Portal.
August 15: Application Deadline
The CASAA application must be submitted and verified by this date, unless this date falls on a weekend, in which case the deadline will be the next business day. CASAA applications that are submitted or verified after the deadline will be considered late. The UMKC General Application for Admission and the UMKC application fee are also due by August 15. After the CASAA application has been verified, applicants will receive additional information on accessing the School of Medicine MSA Student Portal, reviewing the Technical Standards, verifying shadowing experiences and completing the final submission. The Technical Standards, shadowing verification and final submission must be complete two weeks after the application deadline. The latest MCAT/GRE score accepted is the July MCAT/GRE.
*If any of these materials are submitted after the deadlines provided, the application will be considered late and reviewed with other late applications at the discretion of the admissions committee. The admissions committee does not guarantee the review of applications that become complete late. Incomplete applications will not be reviewed. Once admissions decisions have been made, no other applications for admission will be considered.
