Transfer Applicants

TAU welcomes students from WHO/WDMS recognized institutions as transfer applicants to the MD program. TAU currently does not accept students to the clinical science and transfer applications are ONLY considered to the Basic Science Program.

Transfer credit is not automatic, and applicants must not assume that courses taken at other institutions will meet TAU requirements. Acceptance of transfer credit is subject to verification and approval by the Student Promotions & Graduation Committee and subject to the availability of classes. Each transfer student application is carefully reviewed by the Admissions Committee. Due to great variability in the academic backgrounds of transfer students, the requirements and deadlines set forth by the Committee may differ from student to student.
