      3. All grades assigned for academic coursework shall be used in calculating the GPA.
      4. A 4.0 scale shall be used in computing the GPA. (A=4.0, B=3.0, C=2.0, D=1.0, F=0.0)
      5. A grade or symbol indicating failure (F, WF, NC, or in a pass/fail system, FL equals F) shall count as hours undertaken, but no grade points shall be earned.
      6. Excluded from the GPA shall be any credit by examination (CR), quit (Q), withdrawn (W), withdrawn passing (WP), incomplete (I or X), and a pass grade within a pass/fail system.
      7. The GPA shall be computed by multiplying each grade point by the semester or quarter credit hours earned per course and totaling the products. The result is to be calculated to the hundredth place, giving the official cumulative GPA.
      8. Academic work at foreign colleges, universities, or prep schools shall be excluded from the calculation. In such cases, the GPA and credit shall be evaluated and computed as determined by the graduate or professional school to which the student is applying.

I have read and agree to the AAMC Release statement.


Selective Service

17.) Federal law requires that most male U.S. citizens (regardless of where they live), age 18-25, register with the Selective Service. Generally, an male who is required to register with Selective Service must do so to receive federal student aid, and numerous institutions require Selective Service registration to enroll in publicly-funded institutions, or to qualify for state or institutional financial aid. The Veterans Health Administration requires Selective Service registration as an application requirement for males. While this requirement is not new, it is being rigorously enforced in VA Hospitals, so students who do not meet this requirement cannot participate in rotations at VA Hospitals.

I understand that by checking this box that I am providing my electronic signature to certify that I have received notification about the importance of Selective Service registration.
