Admission with Advanced Standing
Saint Louis University School of Medicine accepts applications for transfer with advanced standing into the third year only from students currently enrolled and in good standing in allopathic medical schools located in the United States and accredited by the LCME. Applications from students enrolled in foreign medical schools will not be accepted. The School of Medicine does not reserve any places for transfer students, and the number of places that become available through attrition is normally small. Preference will be given to applicants faced with extreme personal hardship necessitating transfer to the St. Louis area and to applicants whose spouses must relocate in this area.
The deadline for application with advanced standing is April 15th. Applications must be supported by a letter from the student's present Dean. Personal interviews are required for all candidates wishing to transfer. Applicants must perform well on Step 1 of the United States Medical Licensing Examination (USMLE). Applications from students who have failed coursework or have been terminated for any reason at another medical school will not be considered.
