Three Start Dates

When do you apply for medical school? Ross University School of Medicine admits students three times a year, in January, May, and September. This means that you aren't locked into a September start as you would be at many traditional medical schools. Instead, you have the freedom to start medical school when it feels right to you.


Over the past several months, COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the availability of standardized medical school admissions tests in multiple countries, including the MCAT. As a result, Ross University School of Medicine has elected to waive the standardized admission test requirement for impacted applicants that are applying to the January 2020 semester. 
NOTE: The U.S. Department of Education guidance permits medical schools to waive the MCAT requirement for impacted students when related to continued COVID-19 related interruptions. Please talk to an Admissions Colleague for more information.
