FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Will the April 2022 term start in person or online?
Students in all schools will be welcomed to in-person learning on campus in Grenada for the April term. While our expectation is that all students will eventually return to campus, we recognize that some students may be unable to obtain full vaccination and/or booster status prior to April and will, therefore, consider requests for students to start or remain online for the April term. We also realize that visa/passport access is limited in some parts of the world and will consider requests to remain online for these students as well. While our goal is to return all students to in-person learning as quickly as possible, we will be very reasonable in our consideration of exceptions for the April term.
Are students required to have the COVID-19 vaccine and the COVID-19 vaccine booster?
Our priority is protecting the health of our students, and that of the Grenada community, by preventing the spread of the disease. As part of our plan for a safe return to campus life, all students, faculty, staff, administrators, and visitors on campus are required to be fully COVID-19 vaccinated and receive a booster vaccination when eligible in order to gain access to our campus. Those who are not eligible to receive a vaccine booster must receive one within seven days of becoming eligible.
We urge all students who have an opportunity to get fully vaccinated to do so as soon as possible. We remain committed to providing you with all the resources and support needed to be successful.
Will online virtual learning be an option?
Lectures will be in-person on-campus for students in Grenada. All lectures will use a live online delivery via Zoom for students unable to return to Grenada. The sessions will also be recorded and made available after the lecture finishes. Additionally, Panopto will be used to generate new lecture recordings as backups, which can be used in the event of a technical failure when the live online delivery lecture is running. Students in Grenada are expected to attend classes in-person.
I do not have an MCAT score. Can I still apply for the April 2022 term?
All North American applicants (US and Canadian) must submit an MCAT score as part of their application for the April 2022 term and for future terms after April 2022. (The University’s MCAT code is 21303.)
When is the MCAT being administered?
The Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) selects about 20 MCAT test dates each year, and they are all between the months of January through September to fit in the US medical school application cycle. To see the dates and to register for the exam, please visit the US MCAT calendar on the AAMC website.
