MBS Admission & Tuition

Below are basic instructions for submitting an application to the MS in Biomedical Sciences program. Once you are ready to apply, you will create an account in our Graduate Health Sciences Application Portal in order to begin your application, and more detailed instructions will be provided through the portal.

Application Deadline

  • Application Deadline: July 15, 2022
    • The MBS Application will open for the August 2022 entry term the week of September 20, 2021. Complete applications will start to be reviewed by the MBS Admissions Committee beginning in late-January and decisions will be released on a rolling basis until the class is full.
    • While we endeavor to review all applications which are complete by our deadline, because our admissions process is rolling it is possible the class will fill before July 15. Applicants are strongly encouraged to submit a complete application as soon as they are able to ensure it can be reviewed for admission for this cycle.


The MBS Program has aligned its prerequisites with those of Tufts University School of Medicine. Students must have all pre-medical requirements completed with a C- or better prior to matriculation into the MBS Program.

We encourage applicants to check the requirements at medical/dental schools they may be interested in applying to in the future, as they may differ from the School of Medicine's Requirements.
