At Xavier University School of Medicine, we follow a 360° holistic approach in our selection of students for admission. We go beyond simply reviewing academics to consider candidates in full. This includes their life skills and experiences, their personal attributes and capabilities, and who they are inside and outside of the classroom. Why? Because such key factors impact the learning experience for all, and we strive to select those who bring positive energy and contribute greater value to the school.

Admissions Guidelines

Application requirements for prospective students include previous coursework, various other documentation, as well as writing samples. We consider the candidate as a whole, and this practice has led to great success — for both them and for Xavier.
