Informal Credential Review

What Is This?

This is a way to find out if your application would be deemed competitive for the Indiana University School of Medicine BioMedical Gateway (IBMG) Program. This is a free service to you and will only take a few minutes to complete. Please note that this is NOT an application – this is just a chance to have your credentials reviewed. Whatever the outcome of this review, you may still apply to our programs if you wish to do so.

Please note that the Informal Credential Review requires only a subset of the information required for a full application therefore the staff cannot tell you your chances of being admitted or just how competitive you would be since this is not representative of the entire application. To view application components, please visit the IBMG Program Admissions Policy.

The application pool is extremely competitive. A positive response on the Informal Credential Review does not guarantee that an applicant to the program will be interviewed or offered admission.

Who Reviews My Credentials?

A member of the IU School of Medicine Graduate Division will review your credentials. We review the Informal Credential Reviews between May and November. Submissions prior to May will be responded to as time permits, but not later than mid-May. Likewise, submissions submitted on or after December 1st may not receive a response due to the application deadline of December 15th. You can view the  average scores for a typical admissions year and course prerequisite information.

What Must be Supplied In Order to Receive a Full Review?

It is required that you provide GRE scores to submit the Informal Credential Review. If you are an international applicant, you also must submit your TOEFL score. If you submit the Informal Credential Review without your scores, we will be unable to provide you with a review.

We encourage you to submit the credential review at least two weeks prior to the application deadline for which you would like to enroll in order to receive a timely response and have adequate time to complete and submit your application.

Submission of a credential review in the final two weeks prior to the application deadline may not be reviewed. Please note that the application deadline is December 15th for consideration for entry for fall of the following year.
