Transfer Student Admissions

The University of Arizona College of Medicine will not accept transfer student applications until further notice.

The University of Arizona College of Medicine considers requests for transfer from students who are currently enrolled in an LCME-accredited U.S. or Canadian allopathic medical school. Students may only apply for transfer into the third-year of the curriculum. Transfer applicants must have received a passing score on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE) prior to transfer.

Opportunities for transfer are limited as openings in any given year are based on the availability of educational resources, and cannot be guaranteed.  With the exception of transfers into the third year, students are not considered for admission with advanced standing. Individuals are not eligible for transfer if they have been dismissed from the University of Arizona College of Medicine, are not in good standing at their current medical school, or have been expelled from any institution of higher education. The Admissions Committee will consider an applicant’s qualifications, experiences, and reasons for requesting a transfer, upon receipt of a completed Application for Transfer.
