COVID-19 Admissions Update

The admissions committee highly encourages Mizzou Med applicants to keep all required coursework as a letter grade for the spring 2020 semester. However, if this is not an option at your institution, applicants will not be penalized for taking our required coursework as pass/fail for the spring 2020 semester only.

For entering class 2021 applicants, we prefer primary AMCAS applications to be submitted by October 15, however, we will accept applications up until October 30 for those applicants who can’t take the MCAT exam until the end of September. We will also allow those applicants to submit their secondary application materials by November 30.

If any further adjustments are made to deadlines or coursework due to COVID-19, we will continue to update our website with the latest information.


The Lester R. Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program encourages young people from rural backgrounds to pursue a medical education.

Students accepted into the pre-admission program are offered acceptance into the MU School of Medicine on the condition that they achieve certain academic standards, demonstrate ongoing professionalism, and participate in required activities. See the application requirements.

Students who matriculate to the University of Missouri School of Medicine through the Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program also have curricular requirements while attending medical school.

All applicants are required to sign a statement of intent acknowledging their commitment to the Bryant Scholars Pre-Admissions Program and the MU Rural Scholars Program.
