Early Assurance Program

Georgetown’s Early Assurance Program (EAP) is an opportunity for current students who have excelled in their course work and wish to attend Georgetown’s School of Medicine (SOM) to receive assurance of admission at the end of their sophomore year.

To be eligible for the Early Assurance Program, current students must be in their fourth semester at Georgetown University and have completed four of the five pre-med courses by the end of May (biology, general chemistry, organic chemistry, calculus and/or statistics, and physics). One of the four completed courses must be organic chemistry. Applicants may substitute a semester of biochemistry for a second semester of organic chemistry and if so, must complete this course by the end of the sophomore year.  Applicants who choose not to substitute biochemistry for organic chemistry must still take biochemistry before matriculating to Georgetown University School of Medicine if accepted.  Students accepted in the EAP are not required to take the MCAT exam for this program.

Transfer students are not eligible for the EAP.

Additional expectations include:

·        Must complete undergraduate studies successfully while maintaining a minimum GPA of 3.6 (BCPM and overall)

·        Earning a “C” or below in any course will disqualify a student from the program

·        Cannot withdraw from a major course

·        Any changes to the proposal and/or coursework relating to the proposal must be pre-approved by the School of Medicine

·        It is recommended that a student continues coursework in upper level sciences
