|We begin accepting applications for the 2023-2024 cohort on August 15, 2022, through the PostBac Centralized Application System. This certificate program has only one entry term in May of each year.
|The deadline for applications to be verified by PostBacCAS is March 10, 2023. Applications should be completed (e-submitted, payment received, transcripts received, and two letters received) at least four weeks in advance of the March 10 deadline to ensure that the application is verified on time.
|Given the rolling nature of the admissions process, all applicants are strongly encouraged to submit completed applications earlier in the cycle.
|Applying for Admission
|Applicants to the GW Post-Baccalaureate Pre-med Program must complete and submit two applications by the application deadline. Please find below IMPORTANT instructions for completing the two required applications:
|-As a first step, create your standard online application on the PostBacCAS (PostBac Central Application Service). IMPORTANT: You must create your PostBacCAS application first as the Supplemental GW online application requires that you enter your unique PostBacCAS ID number.
|-As a second step, complete the Supplemental GW Online Application, found at https://gw.force.com (application fee: $60). Our supplemental online application is now open.
|You will create an account so that you may work on your application over a period of time. When completing the GW Supplemental Online Application, please select "Undergraduate" from the program type dropdown menu and "Pre-Medicine" from the field of study menu. Please select “Virginia Science and Technology Campus” when the application prompts you for the campus you plan to attend.
|Summer 2023 Deadline: March 15, 2023
