International Applicants


International applicants, as well as U.S. citizens, must have completed at least the last two years of their undergraduate or graduate education in a regionally accredited* U.S. or Canadian institution.   

You must be either a U.S. citizen or a permanent resident of the U.S. with a valid, permanent resident card to be offered acceptance.

All non-U.S. coursework must be evaluated by Josef A. Silny & Associates, a company that offers foreign credential evaluation and translation.  You should have a University and Post-secondary Course-by-Course evaluation completed and sent directly from the Silny office to the MCG Office of Admissions for review. Please be sure that your evaluation includes the U.S. equivalency of the degree you earned at your international university. You may get more information, including cost and evaluation timeline, by visiting the Josef A. Silny & Associates website and viewing the information on Foreign Credential Evaluation and Translation services.      

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

*Accredited by the appropriate regional agency for colleges and schools, i.e., the equivalent of the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools.  Check out the Council for Higher Education Accreditation for more information.
