The P4 requires one letter of recommendation (academic preferred).
Standardized tests are no longer a required piece of the application. Applicants may choose to submit standardized test scores to provide additional evidence of their fitness for the program.
Due to the correlation between performance on the SAT and performance on other standardized tests (MCAT, DAT), the program may request these scores as a way to assist and advise during the program, but they are not required to complete your application.
If requesting standardized tests to be sent to JCLS please use the following codes:
|SAT: CEEB School Code||7923|
|GRE: Institution Code||2999|
|ACT: School Code||3668|
A Resume/CV can be uploaded to the Program Materials section of the application under Documents.
Once an application is complete, applicants can expect to hear back from the Office of Admissions within 2 weeks.
A final decision will be communicated to all applicants within 2 weeks following the interview.
Please contact us with any questions:
Note: Under no circumstances can any application materials submitted to the Office of Admission be returned to the applicant or forwarded to another college, university or third party. All records submitted in support of an application for admission become property of Thomas Jefferson University.
