Eligibility Guidelines

If you’re attending one of our partner programs, you may be eligible to apply for early admission to our College of Osteopathic Medicine.

In order to qualify, you must meet with your premed advisor to notify them of your interest in the program. Your advisor will then provide you with a link to the online application in December of your sophomore year of undergraduate school. Once your application has been reviewed by KCU, and if you meet the criteria for the program, you will be invited to interview at KCU during the Spring semester of your Sophomore year.

If accepted, you will return to your undergraduate university to complete your Junior year and any prerequisite courses you may still need. Upon completion of your Junior year, you will have a reserved seat at KCU-COM and will forego your final year of undergraduate work.

In addition, you’re not required to take the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT).
