Admission Tests

Health Professions Application Services – Launch, Submission and Deadline Dates*
Application services open each year on different dates.  Some allow submission on the same date that they allow access and data entry.  Others do not.  Services also have specific deadlines, but these can vary for specific schools.  DO NOT wait to submit too close to the deadline.  Remember that professional schools use rolling admissions – applications are reviewed as they are received.  You don’t want to be at the bottom of the pile!
