ABOUT THE MCAT EXAM

Over the past several months, COVID-19 has significantly disrupted the availability of standardized medical school admissions tests in multiple countries, including the MCAT. As a result, Ross University School of Medicine has elected to waive the standardized admission test requirement for impacted applicants that are applying to the May 2021 semester.

NOTE: The U.S. Department of Education guidance permits medical schools to waive the MCAT requirement for impacted students when related to continued COVID-19 related interruptions. Please talk to an Admissions Colleague for more information.
