Admissions Process

Last updated: July 26th, 2022 at 11:09 am


Once the Office of Admissions is in receipt of your completed application, our Admissions Committee will review it, and a decision will be made concerning your interview eligibility. Qualified applicants who are invited for an interview will receive notification from the Office of Admissions with instructions on how to schedule an interview. The primary purpose of the interview is to confirm that you possess the qualities necessary to become a successful MD.

Offers of Admission

Offers of admission are made on a rolling basis. Accepted applicants must respond within 2 weeks to confirm their acceptance, unless an extension is approved by WAUSM. A non-refundable deposit of $1,000 is required to accept the offer. Applicants may request a deferral by contacting the Office of Admissions.

Please note that all offers of admission are contingent upon receiving final official transcripts and all other required information, including a satisfactory criminal background check.

Welcome Packet

New students will receive a welcome packet with information pertaining to travel, housing, immigration, permit to reside in Grand Bahama, immunizations, financial aid, supplies, registration, and technology. A Permit to Reside is required for any non-Bahamian who is attending school, college, or university with requisite fees. A permit to reside may be required for a dependent of someone who is legally authorized to reside in The Bahamas, Bahamian or non-Bahamian. These requirements are subject to change and students should contact the Office of Student Affairs for questions and/or assistance.
