How to Apply

The first step in the formal application process is submitting an on-line application with AMCAS, the American Medical College Application Service, which allows students to apply to any participating medical school with only one application and set of transcripts. Transcripts should be sent to AMCAS as directed. Applications for admission are accepted by AMCAS from June 1 to November 1 of the year prior to enrollment. Since Marshall has a rolling admissions process, it is extremely important that applicants submit their application as quickly as possible to enhance their chances of being accepted. 

We utilize the WebAdMIT program to process AMCAS applications and our Supplemental Application.  Through WebAdMIT the AMCAS applications will become available to us around the first of July.  We will take no action on applications until verified by AMCAS.  Verification generally takes four to six weeks from the date of submission of the AMCAS application. 

An invitation to complete the Supplemental Application will be extended via the WebAdMIT gateway to applicants with a verified AMCAS application who are residents of West Virginia or bordering states (Kentucky, Maryland, Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Virginia). After review, nonresident applicants from non-bordering states who have competitive applications will be forwarded a supplemental application.  

There is a nonrefundable supplemental application fee of $75 for West Virginia residents and $100 for nonresidents. If the applicant has received a fee waiver from AMCAS, there will be no fee for application to Marshall. 

In addition to the AMCAS application, a complete application package includes: 

  • Completion of the Supplemental Application 
  • Payment of the Supplemental Application non-refundable fee (this fee is waived if you qualify for the AAMC Fee Assistance Program) 
  • Completion of the Prerequisite Activity 
  • MCAT Score 
  • Receipt of all Letters of Recommendation 

Only complete application packages will be reviewed in consideration of an interview.
