Applicants from other medical schools accredited by the American Osteopathic Association may be admitted with advanced standing at the beginning of the third year, provided that vacancies exist. OSU-COM does not consider transfer students from LCME accredited programs.
To be considered for admission with advanced standing, students must meet the College’s general admissions requirements and submit documents required of applicants to the incoming class. Students from other colleges of osteopathic medicine admitted with advanced standing to OSU-COM must complete their last two years of instruction at OSU-COM.
Applicants for transfer must meet all of the following conditions:
- An application must be filed with the director of admissions with official transcripts of all post-secondary schools attended.
- MCAT results must be verified.
- Medical coursework equivalent to that of Oklahoma State University must be completed up to the time transfer is sought.
- A letter must be sent from the dean of the applicant’s medical school indicating the circumstances of the proposed withdrawal and that the student was in good standing at that time.
Following receipt of the required documents, the director of admissions will determine if the applicant warrants an on-campus interview. All advanced standing admissions will be made through the Student Selection Committee upon approval of the dean.
