Transferring to Scholl

Candidates for advanced standing or transfer to the Dr. William M. Scholl College of Podiatric Medicine should contact the admissions office directly at, or 847-578-3204. Advanced standing or transfer is decided by the Admissions Committee and decided on an individual basis.

To be eligible for consideration, you must:

  1. Advise the Scholl College Admissions Office.
  2. Apply via AACPMAS.
  3. Complete supplemental application prior to February 1. (No exceptions can be made to this deadline.)
  4. Have successfully completed all coursework, credit hours and admission test requirements for first-year admission.
  5. Provide a letter from the Dean of the podiatric medical school you are currently attending.

All applicants who are interested in transfer/advanced standing status at Scholl College must apply with the same requirements (current MCAT, transcripts and letters of recommendation) as new applicants. In addition, candidates must be in good academic standing at a current professional school or have left a professional institution in good academic standing and have a cumulative GPA of at least 3.0 on a 4.0 scale.

Candidates may be required to pass placement examinations at the discretion of the faculty in order to receive transfer credit and advanced standing placement. The final approval of any course for transfer credit is under the authority of the Dean of the College.
