Application Process

Graduate student applications are not being accepted for the coming year.

For Fall admission to the Medical University of South Carolina, please get your application submitted as early as possible.  The target application deadline is 15 January, however applications submitted after this deadline will be reviewed.  Application fees are waived if you are applying to the doctoral program on-line.  

Applications are reviewed in the order that they are received, so acceptances are made on a first-come, first-serve basis.  For admission, GRE scores are required.  No GRE subject (e.g. Biology) test is required.  Research experience is highly valued and can compensate for lower GRE and GPA scores.  (Admission Requirements and Guidelines).

MUSC offers University stipends ($23,000/year for 12 months) to all accepted doctoral students.  When you submit your application, you will automatically be considered for a University stipend - there are no additional forms to fill out.
