Secondary Application

If you have designated Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center (TTUHSC) School of Medicine on your TMDSAS or AMCAS application, we thank you for applying to our medical school!

When we receive your primary TMDSAS or AMCAS application, we will send you an email inviting you to submit an online secondary application to TTUHSC School of Medicine. The invitation to complete the secondary application is normally sent out 2-3 business days after we receive your completed application from TMDSAS or AMCAS, not from the time you submitted your application to TMDSAS or AMCAS. We realize that you may receive an invitation to complete the secondary application after the primary application deadline. This is due to processing time from the primary application service provider. In light of this, the secondary application will be due at the time designated below to ensure all who apply, have an opportunity to complete the secondary application. The secondary application invititaion email will include login information that will enable you to access our online secondary application web site. Please note that your TTUHSC School of Medicine application will not be considered complete until your Secondary Application has been submitted, your TMDSAS or AMCAS application has been "Verified", the minimum required letters of recommendation are received and a valid MCAT score is recorded.

Applicants to our MD program and other dual degree or special programs are required to complete the TMDSAS application. Applicants to our MD/PhD and JD/MD dual degree programs are required to complete the AMCAS application. All applicants are required to complete one secondary application.
