The on-line MSMS pre-application and application will both be available from September 1 until March 31 annually. 

The MSMS pre-application should be completed prior to a MSMS application. Applications are by invitation only.

This program is only for educationally and/or economically disadvantaged students during the time they grew up, not in their current status.

The MSMS admission process provides an individualized, thorough and holistic review of each applicant taking into account personal and academic factors including but not limited to socioeconomic and or educational criteria. No single factor is determinative.

To be considered for admission to the Master of Science in Medical Science Program, the review committee takes into consideration the following examples:

  • A US citizen or permanent resident.
  • Disadvantaged economically and/or educationally
    • The term "educationally disadvantaged" refers to both educational and social disadvantage
      (1) Coming from a low-income family
      (2) Coming from a limited English proficiency family (English as a second language)
      (3) Attending or graduating from a high school that was on probation and/or received low per capita funding (Per student expenditure)
      (4) Attending or graduating from a high school/middle/elementary at which s/he was eligible for free or reduced price lunches
