FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will new SGU School of Medicine students have the option of being on campus for the April 2021 term?
While our goal is to eventually return all students to campus as soon and as safely as possible, students in the School of Medicine will continue exclusively via online distance learning for at least the first half of the April 2021 term. We are evaluating the potential for students to return to campus in Grenada in the summer, if vaccination is widely available. We will remain in close touch over the course of the spring to reassess this potential.
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.
