Timeline:

On submission of your SOPHAS application there is between 4 – 8 weeks before you can anticipate a response to your application. In that time all requested items must reach SOPHAS, including recommendations and official transcripts/test scores.

On final completion, SOPHAS will conduct an initial evaluation of the degree and transcript records.

Once verified, application materials will be sent on to UNTHSC. You will receive an automated email when your application reaches our system.

UNTHSC Admissions will then process and review the application before presenting it to our Faculty Admission Committee. We appreciate your patience as your application is taken through this process.
