On behalf of the TMDSAS Staff, welcome! We are excited that you chose us to be part of your journey into healthcare. Our goal at TMDSAS is to make the process as seamless as possible, to guide you each step of the way, to answer each of your questions, and to serve as the bridge that connects you to your future. Below are a few considerations to help us better serve you.


Help us Better Serve You

This year, our world is facing unprecedented challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. As a measure of protection for TMDSAS staff, we will conduct our operations remotely for the time being. As a result, some services may be delayed as we adjust to new processes.

To help us out and to ensure the highest level of efficiency for our staff, please consider consulting the TMDSAS website and application handbook before calling the TMDSAS office or utilize our support page for help.


Transcripts Not Required at the Time of Application

Please remember that transcripts are not required at the time of application unless you are applying to a special program with an expedited timeline. Applicants will be prompted by TMDSAS to send in their transcripts later in the cycle.

Transcripts

 

Transcripts will need to be sent only when requested by TMDSAS. Please note that transcripts are not required for processing and transmission of applications to participating institutions nor are they required for applicants to receive invitations to interview at participating schools. 

When TMDSAS member institutions begin to extend offers of acceptance on October 15, TMDSAS will reach out to admitted applicants to collect transcripts. For veterinary applicants, transcripts will be requested when applicants are interviewed.
