Penn Medicine - Eligibility

Everything you need to know about our eligibility requirements.

Penn Medicine will accept applications for admission from students who will enter 11th or 12th grade in the 2019 - 2020 school year. (Sometimes, you may hear us refer to this as a rising junior or rising senior.)

Applicants will be required to show that they have taken, or are currently taking, a high school level Biology course. This is done by uploading a copy of your academic transcript and Fall grades after you complete the initial application and gain access to your online account.

Students must also request two letters of recommendation, once of which must be from a STEM subject instructor. (STEM subjects include science, technology, engineering or math.) Instructions for completing the letter of recommendation requirements will be available to you after you complete the initial application and access your online account.
