College of Medicine and Life Sciences - MD Admissions

Secondary Application Process

 After the preliminary screening of AMCAS applications, the Admissions Committee will request additional information from qualified applicants.  Typically this request is for the applicant to provide a secondary application along with application fee payment and letters of recommendations. The application process does not proceed until the secondary application and all letters have been received and the payment processed.

After preliminary screening, qualified applicants are directed to the MD Secondary Application form at  You will create a user ID and pin by clicking on the First Time Users link.  An $80 non-refundable application fee is due upon submission of the secondary application.  All major credit cards are accepted.  Please note, if you pay the fee twice, we cannot guarantee a refund.   Because we manually process these applications please allow us two weeks to process your fee waiver.  To obtain a UT fee waiver you must have an AMCAS fee waiver. 

If you have an AMCAS fee waiver, please complete the following steps in consecutive order: Complete the online application at but do not hit "Submit"; then send an email to requesting a UT fee waiver.  Students will receive an email notification when their application is complete. 

Please Note; application status information is not presented at the Secondary Application site.

All letters of recommendation must be submitted via the AMCAS Letter Service.  Please consult the AMCAS instructions for additional details.

We will accept letters from a Premedical Advisory Committee, a letter packet, or individual letters from the college or university from which you will graduate or have recently graduated.  Often letters are from three (3) faculty members with whom you have studied.  Meaningful letters are typically from individuals who can address features of your personality, history, and motivation in addition to your academic accomplishments.  A maximum of six (6) letters can be submitted.  Letters from family members and family friends are strongly discouraged.

If you are not a recent college graduate, three (3) letters of recommendation are needed and can be obtained from faculty from your former college/university or from someone who is familiar with your activities since leaving college such as a job supervisor or volunteer director.

ALL APPLICATION MATERIAL MUST BE RECEIVED BY DECEMBER 31, 2015.  Students will receive an email notification when their application is complete. The Committee will again review your application for an interview decision. Interviews are by invitation only and generally continue from September through April.  If the interview is approved, you will receive an invitation to visit our Health Science Campus, attend a presentation of by a Dean of Admissions that provides an overview and highligts of our medical school program, interview with members of the College of Medicine faculty, and take a student guided tour of the campus.
