Students may begin their application to the BA/MD program on August 1 of their senior year.  Complete applications must be submitted by the second Friday in November, at 5:00pm MST.  No priority is given to students who submit their applications early.  However, to avoid last minute technical difficulties, we strongly recommend submitting your application before the deadline. 


Application portions:

In order to submit a complete application, students are required to apply separately to UNM, to the BA/MD program, and to either the Regents or Presidential scholarship if their ACT scores qualify them. 



Applications submitted to UNM before October 1st will not be charged an application fee.  Simply choose the “pay later” option when you complete your UNM application.  After October 1st, UNM charges a $25 application fee.  There is no fee to apply to the BA/MD program.
