The Office of Enrollment Management has created special admission programs for applicants who have MU-COM as a top choice for their medical education. Our Early Decision and Fast-Track Programs have different requirements and deadlines, so please read each program description carefully.
Early Decision Program
MU-COM has reserved 10 spots for the Early Decision Program (EDP) to identify highly qualified applicants who consider MU-COM as their first choice medical school. Those applicants who apply to MU-COM through the EDP are prohibited to apply to other medical schools until they have received their EDP admission decision. Those accepted in the EDP are expected to attend MU-COM and will have two weeks from date of admission to submit deposits.
- Minimum 3.70 cumulative GPA
- Minimum 3.50 science GPA
- Minimum 28 cumulative MCAT score (10 minimum biology score) or a 505 on the 2015 MCAT
- Letter of intent stating MU-COM is first choice
- Indicate their intentions of applying to the EDP on supplemental application

Applicants who do not qualify for the EDP are encouraged to apply through the regular admission process.
