Early Undergraduate completion - SOM Transition Policy

BA/MD students who wish to graduate early from the undergraduate portion of the program, typically after three years of undergraduate work, must communicate this with their BA/MD academic advisor at least three academic semesters in advance of planned graduation date. The BA/MD academic advisor will assist you and the program in confirming degree completion, MCAT planning, and include you in all “graduating student” correspondence and meetings.

BA/MD students graduating early, planning to transition into the UNM School of Medicine portion of the program at their regularly scheduled admission time must satisfy the A&S and SOM Transition Continuous Eligibility Standards. These policies, in addition to the Four Year Matriculation Policy, will require the student to defer UNM SOM Admission offer for one year. This procedure will allow the BA/MD student to remain in active status in the BA/MD Program.
