MD Admissions Deadlines & Policies

The following application timeline gives general information on how the admissions process works. Applicants will be notified of their final admissions decisions after all interviews are completed in late winter.

We participate in the American Medical College Application Service® (AMCAS®) Choose Your Medical School Tool, which applicants use to communicate decisions about which schools they plan to attend, and we follow AMCAS® Application and Acceptance Protocols. It is your responsibility to ensure that you keep your contact information up to date with AMCAS® so that you do not miss important notifications.

We will accept 24 students in 2021. Our class size will rise slowly over the next few years to a maximum of 40 students in each class. We do not offer dual degree options at this time.

Policies for Admitted Students

If you are admitted to NYU Long Island School of Medicine and plan to accept our offer, you must notify us using our online admissions portal within the following time periods, or your acceptance offer will be rescinded:

  • accepted on or before April 30, within 2 weeks
  • accepted between May 1 and June 18, within 5 business days
  • accepted on or after June 19, within 2 business days

Commit to Enroll Policy

Using the AMCAS® Choose Your Medical School Tool, you may select either the “plan to enroll” or “commit to enroll” option. If you select the “plan to enroll” option, you can continue to hold acceptance offers from other medical schools, remain on alternate lists, and interview at other schools. When you select “commit to enroll,” it indicates that you have made your final selection and are withdrawing all other medical school applications.

All applicants who are accepted to NYU Long Island School of Medicine and who plan to matriculate must select the “commit to enroll” option no later than June 28. You must withdraw from all other acceptances and alternate lists by that date. Failure to adhere to these policies may result in your acceptance offer being rescinded.

Acceptance Deferral

Accepted students are required to matriculate during the year that they apply. Under extremely limited circumstances, such as sudden illness or an unanticipated family hardship, accepted students may request a one-time, one-year deferral of matriculation.

Requests for acceptance deferral must be submitted in writing to our Office of Admissions by May 1 of the year you are accepted. All deferral requests are evaluated on a case-by-case basis. We do not guarantee approval.
