Application Procedure: D.O. Program

NYIT College of Osteopathic Medicine (NYITCOM) participates with other colleges of osteopathic medicine in the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine Application Service (AACOMAS).

AACOMAS does not participate in the selection process, nor does it offer any recommendations to applicants concerning the selection of a college.

NYITCOM subscribes to the Admissions Guidelines and Applicant Protocol of the American Association of Colleges of Osteopathic Medicine, as published in the AACOM Osteopathic Medical College Information Book.

To submit an application to NYITCOM, visit The web-based application allows you to submit your application to the College of Osteopathic Medicine through a secure web server.

For further information contact:

Completed applications should be submitted along with the required fee, official transcripts, and MCAT scores.

Selected applicants will be invited by NYITCOM for a personal interview. An applicant must be interviewed prior to consideration by the Committee on Admissions for acceptance. A request for an interview should not be construed as an offer of acceptance.

Supplementary Materials

  1. Applicants are required to complete our Supplemental Application form and to remit the required $80 nonrefundable supplemental application fee. The link to the Supplemental Application will be sent to you upon receipt of your AACOMAS application.
  2. We require a pre-health committee letter/composite letter or letters from two science and one nonscience faculty members who have taught you. D.O./M.D. letters from nonfamily members are strongly recommended, and letters from long-term work, research, and clinical experiences are valuable.

Note: All supplemental materials must be received before the Committee on Admissions can make a final decision regarding interview selection and acceptance.

NYITCOM accepts applicants on a rolling basis. Applicants may also be placed in a wait list category for future consideration, as openings become available after the class is filled. Upon acceptance, a NONREFUNDABLE $1,500 enrollment confirmation deposit is required to confirm a place in the class.
