TCOM Admissions: Changes in Admissions Related to COVID-19 Pandemic

Key Information Items for Applicants:

Complete your TMDSAS and TCOM Secondary Application in a timely manner.  We will process your application without the MCAT scores (if you are waiting to take the test).  We will add your scores with your application when they arrive.

Make sure you monitor receipt of letters of recommendation.  We typically receive them within days from the time they arrive at TMDSAS.  We will update the checklist in our portal as they are received and added to your application.

Continue to monitor this web page for announcements.  We will continue to monitor the disruptions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic and will adjust our policies and procedures accordingly.  If there are any additional changes to our admissions process, we will post them here.  We will also post them in the Texas Health Education Service Newsroom.

Pass/Fail Courses:
