MBS Admission & Tuition

The Tufts MBS program is designed to help pre-medical and pre-dental candidates improve their credentials for their application to medical and dental school programs.

Interviews are not required and not available. 

We cannot access materials submitted to Tufts MD through AMCAS, or Tufts Dental through ADSAS.

Application Deadline

  • Final deadline- July 1st
    • All applications and materials must be received by the deadline. Applications are reviewed on a rolling admissions basis and the class can potentially fill prior to the deadline.


The MBS Program has aligned its prerequisites with those of Tufts University School of Medicine (TUSM). 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 TUSM Requirements.

Application Requirements
