Secondary Application Information


Every student who applies to TUSOM will need to fill out a secondary application. Once AMCAS verifies your application, they send the application to us. AMCAS can take a few weeks to verify your application, but once your primary application or AMCAS application is verified, AMCAS sends you an e-mail informing you Tulane has received your application. Within the next week, you will be emailed a secondary application from TUSOM. It is in your best interest to fill out your secondary application as soon as possible as we work on rolling admissions. Do not forget to check your spam mail for any communications.
