Saint Louis University

Application Process


All applicants must submit the results of this test to the Committee on Admissions. The test must be completed by September 2017. The Committee does not consider MCAT scores prior to 2014.

What follows is a summary of the policy information:

A service fee of $100 is charged to all applicants. An AMCAS fee waiver is required to waive the fee.

All materials required for the Committee on Admissions to process your application should be submitted as early as possible.

  • AMCAS deadline for submission: December 15, 2017.
  • Saint Louis University Supplemental Application deadline: January 15, 2018.
  • Decision deadline for applicants holding multiple acceptances: April 30, 2018.

A passport-size photograph is required. This .jpg photo will be uploaded into the application system.

If your school has a Pre-medical Advisory Committee, a letter from the committee is sufficient. If your school does not have a committee, please request letters of evaluation from three of your college or university teachers. Be sure at least one of these individuals teaches science. Remember, an insightful and in-depth evaluation by someone who knows you is of greater value than just a recapitulation of your academic work. Letters from others who know you, in addition to the basic recommendations, are welcome as well. It is the responsibility of the applicant to assure that all of the necessary documents reach the Committee on Admissions. Please remember that your application is not complete until all letters of recommendation have been received.

Saint Louis University encourages good communication. Please include your name as it appears on your application and your AMCAS ID number in your correspondence. We encourage use of e-mail, mail and fax. Addresses are: •

Saint Louis University School of Medicine
Office of Admissions
1402 S. Grand Blvd.
St. Louis, MO 63104
Phone: 314-977-9870

Applicants are carefully selected for an interview with a member of the Committee. The interview itinerary includes a luncheon with students and faculty, financial aid information, and a tour of the School of Medicine.

Communications will be sent via e-mail. Every effort is made to be sure each applicant receives notification by April 30, 2018, whether that decision is accepted, not accepted, or placement on the alternate list.

As required by law, Saint Louis University's Annual Security and Fire Safety Report is available online at The report provides information related to crime prevention, fire safety, reporting policies, disciplinary procedures and other matters related to campus security. It also contains crime statistics from the past three years for incidents reported on campus; in certain campus buildings or property owned or controlled by the University; and on public property within or immediately adjacent to and accessible from the campus. Paper copies are available through the Department of Public Safety and Emergency Preparedness, Room 114 Wool Center, 3545 Lindell, St. Louis, MO. To request a copy by mail call 314-977-7129.

Higher purpose. Greater good.
