Transfer in advanced standing

Advanced standing admission is open only to students who previously have not been dismissed from any medical school and who are in good standing in LCME-accredited American or Canadian medical schools. Transfers are only at the third-year level and are limited in number each year. Interested students should request information between Jan. 1 and Jan. 15 of the year they wish to transfer. Applicants must pass Step 1 of the U.S. medical licensing examination prior to matriculation. Transfers are handled by the VCU School of Medicine curriculum office.
