Who does TMDSAS consider a re-applicant?
A reapplicant is defined as one who has previously submitted an application that was transmitted to any TMDSAS medical, dental, or veterinary school.
If I am a re-applicant, do I have to complete a new application?
If you have already registered for an account or if you applied for admission since 2010, it is not necessary to go through the registration process again. You will sign in to TMDSAS using the same email address and password that you used for the previous application.
The majority of the information entered into the previous year’s application will “roll-over” to the current application for your review. For these sections, you MUST still go to each section, review the information displayed, make corrections where necessary, and then SAVE the page.
Information entered in the following sections will NOT roll-over : Select Schools, Demographic, Family Info, Financial, Essays, Photo, Letters of Evaluation, Proof of Residency, Planned Enrollment, Chronology of Activities and Certification Statement. These sections will need to be completed again. After you have saved each section of the application, go to the Certification and Payment sections to complete your application.
You must also re-send your transcripts, letters of evaluation and pay a new application fee. It is recommended that you do not send the same letters from the last application cycle. Letters of evaluation should be updated or come from new evaluators.
Will I need to re-release my test scores?
No. If you previously released your DAT score to TMDSAS, you do not need to re-release it to us. You will only need to release any scores from exams taken since the last time you applied.
Do I need to send in new copies of transcripts and/or letters of evaluation? Nothing has changed from my previous application.
Yes. You will need to re-submit official transcripts and letters of evaluation to TMDSAS for each application cycle you apply. We do not maintain these records from year-to-year.
Can I get a hard copy of a previous year's application?
If you applied for admission since 2010, you can print a copy of your application by signing in to the application and printing the PDF version that is available. Once you have logged in, you will see the following statement on the homepage of the application: Below is a list of the TMDSAS applications you have created. Click the Entry Year link to view the entire selected application in PDF form. Be sure that you have any pop-up blockers turned off.
If you applied prior to 2010 and did not keep a personal copy and need a copy of your application, you must send TMDSAS a written request with your full name, mailing address, entry year of application and a $10.00 check or money order for the retrieval fee. Please allow 4-6 weeks for delivery if request is made during peak periods (July - September).
