Residency Requirements

The UT Health Science Center College of Medicine selects one class each year which enters in August. The entering class is composed of a maximum of 165 new students. Applicants must be citizens or permanent residents of the United States at the time of application. Applications are considered from: [1] Tennessee residents, [2] residents of the eight states contiguous to Tennessee - Mississippi, Arkansas, Missouri, Kentucky, Virginia, North Carolina, Georgia, Alabama and [3] children of UT system alumni regardless of their state of residence, i.e., father or mother. As a state-supported institution, the College of Medicine gives priority to qualified Tennessee residents. In each entering class, a maximum of 10% of the matriculants may be non-residents. Non-resident applicants who are seeking in-state tuition rates must provide clear documentation.
