Transfer Students are Welcome

Students may apply to The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat for transfer from any IMED, AVICENNA, or World Health Organization listed school or accredited College of Medicine or Osteopathic Medicine or the equivalent. Evaluation of transcripts is done on an individual basis. Students normally transfer previously completed coursework into the appropriate level of pre-clinical or clinical levels. The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat reserves the right to decline transfer credits of grade “C” or lower or those credits obtained through online coursework or other sources that have not been validated.

All transfer credits are evaluated under the guidelines established by the Educational Commission for Foreign Medical Graduates (ECFMG) of the U.S. prior to acceptance by The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat.

The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat recognizes that competency may be achieved in many subjects via alternative programs of medical education and field experiences. Applicants from non-WHO listed or alternative schools and colleges are invited to sit for competency testing in individual subjects for which they may be prepared and seek transfer credit for. A minimum pass rate of 70% on U.S. standard test is required.

For non-U.S. applicants that have completed pre-medical or medical basic sciences coursework elsewhere, The University of Science, Arts and Technology, Montserrat will look at only those courses equivalent to its program classes with an earned GPA of 3.0 or greater when converted to the U.S. standard.
