Admitted Medicine Students

Congratulations! The University of Tennessee Health Science Center College of Medicine Admissions Office is happy to welcome you to its' upcoming entering class!

Classes are scheduled to begin Monday, August 15, 2022. You are asked to do the following:

Decide and Respond

Once You’ve Been Accepted

1. Plan to Enroll: Beginning February 22, 2022 - Admitted students can select “Plan to Enroll” for their top medical school choice on the Choose Your Medical School Tool in AMCAS.

By April 15, 2022 - Applicants holding more than three admission offers should narrow their offers of acceptance to three schools designated as “Plan to Enroll,” with no limit on alternate list offers.

2. Commit to Enroll: Beginning May 2, 2022, you must choose one (1) medical school where you "Plan to Enroll." 

Commit to Enroll” also becomes available to applicants in the Choose Your Medical School Tool. “Commit to Enroll” indicates that you have made your final selection and have withdrawn all other applications. (Note: Selecting this option does not automatically withdraw applicants from other medical schools. You must follow school-specific protocols for withdrawing your application).

All admitted applicants must choose one (1) medical school under the "Plan to Enroll" or "Commit to Enroll" protocol by May 2, 2022. Applicants may remain on other school's waiting lists only if the “Plan to Enroll” option has been selected.

3. Withdraw Other Applications: You must select “Commit to Enroll” for UTHSC College of Medicine no later than July 18, 2022, if you plan to matriculate at UTHSC College of Medicine. You must also withdraw all other applications by that date.

Multiple Acceptance Decisions
Notification Deadline
Prior to April 15 May 2 (AAMC Plan to Enroll Deadline) no enrollment deposit required
May 2 - June 15 2 weeks from your offer of acceptance
June 16 - July 18 1 week from your offer of acceptance
After July 18 ASAP
*Please note that this information ONLY applies to the College of Medicine.

These are maximum time limits. In order to be fair to other applicants on the waitlist, when you have multiple acceptances, please notify each school as soon as you have made a final decision. This will allow other offers of admission to be made in an expedient manner.

To officially withdraw your offer of acceptance you must e-mail, fax or postal mail a written letter requesting to withdraw. If you have multiple acceptances, the final deadline to defer/delay your matriculation or accept our offer is July 1.

NetID and Default Password

In order to finalize your acceptance, the institution requires that ALL students be fully admitted to the University. The University of Tennessee Health Science Center Office of Enrollment Management will contact you regarding your NetID and default password which may take two weeks from the date of your acceptance letter. Once you receive your NetID and default password you can log-in to Banner Self-Service to begin the acceptance process. By completing the acceptance process, this will enable you to be awarded financial aid and register for classes prior to matriculation.

You will be asked to authorize a $75.00 charge to your credit card. The $75.00 processing fee is non-refundable and the deadline to register for the Fall Term is August 1. Should you have any questions with regard to this process, please contact their office at 901-448-1035. 

Orientation
Check the New Student Orientation website for important dates and information. There you will find details about NSO week, our annual Parents Appreciation Day and the White Coat Ceremony.

NOTE: Students should not make travel arrangements or other appointments that may conflict with NSO week.

Housing
If you are looking for a place to live or just looking for a roommate, the campus-wide housing can assist you with your search. The University of Tennessee Health Science Center campus does not offer on-campus housing.
Name or Address Change

If your name has changed since submitting your AMCAS application, you must complete a name change on academic record form. Once you have submitted the form,  e-mail our office to let us know you have completed the name change request and wish to have your name changed in the White Coat Ceremony Program.
