How to Apply

Requirements

More

To be eligible for admission into NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM), you must:

  • Have a bachelor’s degree from an accredited college or university
  • Have completed an acceptable academic year sequence with a grade of “C” or better in the following prerequisite courses:
    • English: six semester hours
    • Biology, including a basic course in general biology or zoology (lecture and lab): eight semester hours
    • General Chemistry (lecture and lab): eight semester hours
    • Organic Chemistry (lecture and lab): eight semester hours
    • Physics (lecture and lab): eight semester hours
  • Have taken the Medical College Admission Test (MCAT) in the past three years and report your scores directly to AACOMAS (Code 600).
  • Meet NYITCOM technical standards for acceptance and matriculation

The above are minimum requirements for admission to the College of Osteopathic Medicine. Students are encouraged to enroll in additional courses such as calculus, comparative anatomy, genetics, physical chemistry, biochemistry, behavioral sciences, and neurosciences. Community and hospital based volunteer or professional work is another way by which applicants can assess their interest in the healing profession and express their commitment.

Tell us more about yourself by completing our online supplemental application. Note: there is a nonrefundable fee of $80. Please be sure to view our Frequently Asked Questions for assistance with the supplemental application.

Evaluation letters from pre-professional committees should be sent directly to NYITCOM; you may also submit these materials using AACOMAS, Interfolio, or Virtual Evals. You may substitute evaluations from no less than three faculty members (two of whom must teach sciences if your current school lacks a pre-professional committee).

In addition, a personal evaluation by an osteopathic physician is strongly recommended.

Transfer Students

More

You may transfer to NYITCOM to gain entry into your third year. You must have already completed the equivalent of all required first- and second-year courses. You may only transfer from schools that are accredited by the American Osteopathic Association. Each transfer request will be reviewed and eligibility determined on a case-by-case basis; at a minimum, the prospective transfer student must be in good academic standing at the originating osteopathic medical school.

Requirements, among others, include:

  • Formal letter requesting transfer to NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine
  • Official transcripts from all colleges attended, including undergraduate, graduate, and medical schools
  • Record of MCAT results
  • Written verification of student’s good academic standing
  • Personal interview with NYITCOM faculty and staff
  • Successful completion of COMLEX Step I

Application for transfer and required documentation must be submitted between Feb. 1 and March 15. Admission decisions will be made after all currently enrolled NYITCOM students are placed in clinical rotations (typically during the month of April).
