4/1/2020 update: Pass/Fail Classes

Most health professions schools require a letter grade higher than C- in all prerequisite classes. “CR” and “Pass” grades do not normally count.

As of today, many (but not all!) medical and dental schools have said that they’ll accept a CR or P grade in prerequisite classes for the spring 2020 semester only.

The most current information for how medical schools are responding to coronavirus can be found at these links:

TMDSAS : lists Texas public medical, dental, and veterinary schools
AACOMAS : lists most osteopathic medical schools
AMCAS : lists questions pertaining to most schools not listed on TMDSAS or AACOMAS
