PLEASE NOTE: If you received a Secondary Application invitation prior to your AMCAS application being verified, your activities will NOT automatically import. You will need to enter these manually.
We are pleased you are interested in attending the University of Alabama School of Medicine. Visit our step-by-step guide to assess your competitiveness for medical school and submit your AMCAS application. The AMCAS application deadline is November 1st and the UASOM Secondary Application deadline is November 15th. If you have submitted your Secondary Application by the deadline date, but your AMCAS application is not yet verified, please do not worry. You have met the deadline and once your AMCAS application is verified, your application will continue through the review process.
All applicants verified by AMCAS who are U.S. Citizens or Permanent Residents are invited to complete our Secondary Application. Applicants are expected to complete the Secondary Application process within two weeks of receiving the request. Applicants should be aware that Interviews are offered on a "first completed, first to interview basis". Should an applicant wait to complete the Secondary Application, we cannot guarantee that all qualified applicants will have an opportunity to interview.
Any applicant who has been accepted but subsequently fails to enroll, or who has been refused admission but wishes to enter in a subsequent year, must re-apply for admission and must meet all requirements in force at the time of the new application. The Admissions Committee expects all re-applicants to have improved their credentials significantly.
Applicants interested in our Rural Medical Programs are encouraged to visit our Rural Programs webpage.

- Huntsville/Auburn Rural Medicine Program: Interviews will be located in Huntsville
