Grade Point Average (GPA) Regulations

The minimum required GPA is 3.0 on the 4.0 scale. Grades will be converted to a 4.0 scale according to the OMSAS Undergraduate Grading System Conversion Table. The GPA is calculated on all converted undergraduate course grades completed at a recognized institution as of the application deadline.

For those applicants whose 4 year degree is completed through a transfer of credits from a college, they are required to have completed a minimum of ten full course credits, twenty half course credits or, a combination of at the university degree level at the time you apply.

Grades for supplementary, spring, summer, and part‑time study and distance education courses will be included in the GPA calculation. 

Courses reflected on the transcript as “Pass”, with no grade indicated, will not be considered in the GPA calculation.

If you repeated a course and both course grades appear on your transcript, both the past grade and the repeated grade will be included in the GPA calculation. 

Applicants with a Graduate Degree

If you have a graduate degree (Masters/PhD), you will not be considered for admission as part of a separate applicant pool. 

Applicants who possess a graduate degree (Masters/PhD) will receive an additional 0.2 if you meet the minimum GPA of 3.0 on a 4.0 scale after the initial GPA calculation.

Your graduate degree must be conferred and NOSM must receive your final transcript indicating graduation by December 30, 2017 to be considered for the 0.2 addition.

You will not receive the additional 0.2 for more than one graduate degree.

Special Circumstances

No allowances are made for how many years ago the work was done or circumstances that may have caused you to have lower marks. If you feel that a mark on your transcript is low because of circumstances beyond your control, you must address this with the Registrar of the university you attended. If the mark is removed from your transcript, we will not use it. Our academic assessment is based upon the information on your transcript.
