Notice to all undergraduate students

Posted on Tuesday, January 12, 2021

Most recently, some universities have made the decision to give undergraduate students the option of choosing a qualitative grade (satisfactory / unsatisfactory) for one of their eligible courses for the fall 2020 term as well as for the winter 2021 term. We would like to remind you that if you are considering applying to our Undergraduate Doctor of Medicine (MD) program, it is important to carefully consider the admission requirements before making your decision. To maintain your eligibility, you must have either letter or numerical grades for a minimum of four courses per semester.

Important information regarding the prerequisite courses:

Our eligibility criteria clearly states that prerequisite courses must be completed with a minimum Grade of B, therefore it is important to have either letter or numerical grades for all prerequisites. If a qualitative grade (satisfactory/unsatisfactory) is assigned for the prerequisites, you will be required to obtain either letter or numerical grades by the registrar of your institution. Exceptions will be granted only if the institution did not give students the option of choosing a qualitative grade for all their courses during the COVID-19 period.

Given the COVID-19 restrictions, we will exceptionally accept virtual labs only if in-person labs are not offered or accessible to students during this period.
