Thank you for your interest in learning more about how to apply to the Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine!

The Burrell College of Osteopathic Medicine participates in the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS). The AACOMAS offers prospective applicants a convenient and centralized online application service for accredited osteopathic medical schools. Through AACOMAS, an applicant files one master electronic application, which is then verified and distributed to the designated osteopathic colleges selected by the applicant. The AACOMAS application opens to perspective applicants in May of each cycle year. Go to www.AACOM.org to begin the application process.

Rolling Admissions

The College uses a rolling Admissions process. Pre-screened applicants will be invited to submit a Supplemental Application. Applications will be reviewed and interview invitation decisions made at regular intervals during the cycle. Interviews will be conducted in a traditional format, from September through April of the cycle, with decisions delivered on a rolling basis. Applicants from both in-state and out-of-state are encouraged to apply; at this time the College is unable to consider international applicants.
