Ontario Medical School Application Fee Waiver Pilot Program (2023-2024)
If applying to medical school is a significant financial burden to you, consider applying to the Ontario Medical School Application Fee Waiver Pilot Program and save approximately $600.00.
This program subsidizes the application costs for up to three (3) Ontario medical schools for the 2023-2024 application cycle. This program was collaboratively developed by the Association of Faculties of Medicine in Canada (AFMC), Council of Ontario Faculties of Medicine (COFM), Ontario Universities’ Application Centre (OUAC), and Price of a Dream (POD).
Applications open on June 28, 2023 and close on August 22, 2023. You can find more information on eligibility here. If you have any questions, please contact AFCM (email@example.com) or the POD (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Falsification of Application Information
NOSM University reserves the right to determine the veracity of any and all statements in an application.
If it is discovered that any application information is false or misleading, or that information has been concealed or withheld, the application will be disqualified; or, if discovered after an offer of admission has been sent, that offer will be withdrawn. If these circumstances are discovered after the student has been admitted into the Medical Program, the student will be required to withdraw from the Program. An applicant so discovered will be barred from applying to NOSM University for five (5) years.
