UA College of Medicine’s Commit to Enroll/Plan to Enroll Policy

Acceptance Policy

“If an applicant receives an acceptance offer from UA College of Medicine prior to April 30, a written response (via the online acceptance portal) must be received within 10 days of the offer. The response will indicate if an applicant will accept or decline the offer. If an applicant does not respond within the 10-day timeline, the acceptance offer is automatically rescinded.”

“If an applicant receives an acceptance offer from UA College of Medicine after April 30, a written response (via the online acceptance portal) must be received within 5 days of the offer. The timeline may be reduced to two days if the applicant is offered close to the start of orientation. Note: If any date falls on a weekend/holiday, the timeline will apply to the following business day.
