FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will the January 2021 term start in person or online?
While our goal is to return all students to campus as soon and safely as possible, we are confirming today that students in the School of Medicine will continue exclusively via online distance learning for the entire January 2021 term.
SGU leadership considered all aspects of a potential return to campus in January but remains concerned about the worsening status of the COVID-19 pandemic around the world and the related increase in hospitalizations. Our priority is to focus on how we can protect your health, and that of the Grenadian community, by preventing spread of the disease. Although Grenada has few COVID-19 cases currently, many of our students live in or travel through countries where the cases of COVID-19 infection are poorly controlled and have been increasing dramatically.
Some of my students do not have an MCAT score. Can they still apply?
Due to COVID-19 disruptions, all January 2021 and April 2021 applicants can be reviewed for admission to SGU without an MCAT score. DOE guidance permit waiving the MCAT requirement during a year in which the MCAT was unavailable to students for some period due to COVID-19 related interruptions. Our committee on admissions, the Faculty Student Selection Committee, will review applicants for January 2021 and April 2021 for admission without an MCAT score. Applicants who have already taken and received scores for the MCAT are encouraged to submit their scores.
