General Information


■  Augusta University is an Affirmative Action/Equal Opportunity Educational Institution. No person shall, on the grounds of age, disability, gender, national origin, race, religion, sexual orientation or status as a Vietnam Era Veteran, be excluded from participation in, or be otherwise subjected to discrimination in any educational program, activity or facility.

■  The 2017 incoming class of 230 was selected from 1,267 in-state and 1,807 out-of-state applications. Although admission is competitive, in concert with academics the Admissions Committee uses a holistic review process to select the applicants best-qualified to study medicine.

■  Preference is given to applicants with a baccalaureate degree in a regionally accredited* college prior to entering the Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University. The minimum requirement is 90 semester hours or 135 quarter hours. A limited number of highly competitive, non-degree applicants may be accepted each year. The non-degree college must be acceptable as the equivalent of the first three years leading to the bachelor of science or art in a regionally accredited* college of arts and sciences.

■  Applicants enrolled in a graduate-degree program must complete all requirements of their graduate degree prior to enrolling in medical school.

■  Augusta University/University of Georgia Medical Partnership
There is no separate admissions process. All applicants applying through the Early Decision Program or the Regular Decision Program to the Medical of Georgia at Augusta University will complete one application through the American Medical College Application Service. Interviewed applicants will be asked whether or not they have a campus preference. While student preference will be considered, there is no guarantee that any applicant will be assigned to his/her preferred campus.

■  Residents and Non-Residents
Preference is given to Georgia residents. Applicants for admission may be classified as residents of only one state. Applicants offered admission as a Georgia resident are expected to maintain Georgia resident status in American Medical College of Application Service records. Applicants who claim Georgia residency must make claim on their AMCAS application no later than Nov. 1, 2017. No residency changes are permitted afterward. Georgia residents who change their legal state of residence designation with AMCAS after being accepted at MCG will have their acceptance withdrawn and their applications for admission reviewed for admission as a non-resident of Georgia.

*Accredited by the appropriate regional agency for colleges and schools, i.e., the equivalent of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.
