Acceptance Process

When the Committee on Admissions (COA) makes a final decision regarding an interviewed applicant, the Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O) Program Admissions Office will contact each applicant via email and mail to inform him or her of the committee's decision. Applicants may also view the status of their application at any time on NSU Self-Service Banner (WebSTAR).



An acceptance package is mailed to applicants following notification from the D.O Program Admissions Office of acceptance. All offers of acceptance are provisional. An offer of acceptance may be rescinded if the applicant does not respond to the acceptance offer or does not maintain academic standards or meet other program requirements prior to enrollment. Non-receipt of the deposit by the due date can also result in revoking the offer of acceptance.

Not Accepted

A notification of non-admittance is sent to each applicant declined admission. Upon request, the Office of Admissions will counsel the applicant to help increase their competitiveness for a future application.


Due to the large volume of applicants and the available seats in the class, the COA may place prospective students on the alternate list. The COA does not rank order prospective students on the alternate list. Applicants will be contacted by the D.O. Program Admissions Office periodically to provide updates on the status. The applicant will be informed immediately upon change of admission status.

Acceptance Packages

Acceptance packages include acceptance letters, deposit Instructions, housing information (if available), financial aid information, acknowledgement of requirements, intent letter, COM Outlook magazine, and a Certificate of Technical Standards for the program.
