CONDITIONS OF ACCEPTANCE
1. All acceptances to the University of Virginia School of Medicine are contingent upon satisfactory completion of all future course work, including requirements needed to complete undergraduate majors and degree requirements. A grade of "C" will require a written explanation. A grade of "D" or below will result in a re-evaluation of the application. If you have made changes in the selection of courses after filing your AMCAS application, please notify the Admissions Office in writing. The Admissions Office should also be notified of any decision to take a course for credit/no credit, pass/fail, to audit a course, or to take any remaining courses at a school other than the one indicated on the AMCAS application. The Office should also be informed if you decide to graduate early or enroll as a part-time student.
2. Although you mailed transcripts to AMCAS at the time you applied, AMCAS does not forward those transcripts to the University of Virginia. Before you matriculate, you must have official transcripts sent to the Admissions Office from each college or university you have attended, even if those course credits were transferred to another school. This includes any study abroad programs. Student copies are not acceptable. These transcripts will become an official part of your permanent medical school record and will be used for verification purposes after you graduate from the School of Medicine.
3. If legal or criminal proceedings are filed against you prior to matriculation, or if you are the recipient of any institutional disciplinary action, it is your responsibility to inform the Admissions Office immediately. Additionally, all students must undergo a mandatory criminal background check as a condition of acceptance to the School of Medicine. See the full Criminal Background Check Policy.
4. If you are currently an undergraduate, you must complete all bachelor degree requirements before matriculating at the University of Virginia. If you are currently enrolled in a graduate program, you must complete all advanced degree requirements prior to matriculation.
5. In order to reserve your position at the University of Virginia, you must return your Class Reservation Form and Declaration of Meeting Technical Standards Form within three weeks of receiving an offer. Returning your Class Reservation Form indicates that you are currently interested in holding a position at the School of Medicine. You are free to withdraw from the incoming class at any time without penalty.
6. All incoming medical students are required to provide proof of current American Heart Association approved Basic Life Support (BLS) certification. Please send a photocopy of both sides of your signed BLS certification to the Admissions Office as soon as possible, but certainly before school begins in August.
7. Applicants are permitted to hold only one medical school position (at a time) after May 15. AMCAS will report to the medical schools which acceptances you are holding. In fairness to applicants on the waiting list, please make your decision no later than April 30th (the same date applies to MD-PhD applicants).
Failure to meet these Conditions of Acceptance will result in withdrawal of your acceptance to the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Please contact the Admissions Office if you have any questions about these conditions. (434) 924-5571.
