Upon acceptance to the University of Utah School of Medicine, students will begin preparing for matriculation and their future as medical students. Preparation includes events such as Second Look Day and the White Coat Ceremony, as well as submitting a number of required documents and forms to begin medical school in August.
Once accepted to the University of Utah School of Medicine, students will be required to submit the following in order to confirm their acceptance and matriculate:
- Tuition Deposit
- Graduate School Application
- Criminal Background Check Report
- Transcripts from all attended institutions
- Dean's Certification form
- Immunization records
- Proof of Health Insurance
The University of Utah School of Medicine policy states that accepted applicants are expected to matriculate into to medical school in August of the year of application.
Circumstances for which a deferral may be granted include, but are not limited to:
- Serious illness of applicant or immediate family member
- Family hardship
- Meaningful educational opportunity
- Completion of military service
Applicants requesting a deferment must email the Associate Dean for Admissions at firstname.lastname@example.org prior to June 1 of the acceptance year.
The request should include an explanation of the reason for the deferral, and additional information or documentation may be required before making a final determination. The Associate Dean may consult with the Admissions Committee for consideration of each request.
Deferment may be granted for the period of one academic year, and may be extended upon written request to the Associate Dean for Admissions.
All decisions by the Associate Dean for Admissions and Admissions Committee are final. If a deferral request is granted, applying to another medical school during the period of deferment will result in withdrawal of the initial offer of acceptance and loss of position at the University of Utah School of Medicine.
Those approved for deferral will be required to submit a new AMCAS application for the year they will be entering medical school, due by November 1 of the same year.
If the applicant does not submit their AMCAS application by this deadline, their acceptance may be withdrawn.
