The following items must also be submitted to complete your application. Unofficial transcripts, score reports, and (if applicable) foreign credential evaluations can be sent for an initial evaluation. Applicants who are invited to interview must provide official documents by that time. To be considered “official” transcripts, test scores and credential evaluations must be emailed to us directly from the institution or through a secure credential service. We recommend requesting official copies early.

If you did not take the SAT or ACT in high school, then the GRE is required. If the SAT or ACT scores appear on your high school transcript, we will accept them as the official score report. If the scores do not appear on your transcript, you should request an official score report of the SAT, ACT, or GRE to be sent directly to the Johns Hopkins Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Program using the following institution codes. Please do not use the general Johns Hopkins University code when ordering your reports.

  • Résumé
  • Two letters of evaluation with cover forms emailed to postbac@jhu.edu by your writers.  One letter should come from a member of the faculty in your major area of study from the undergraduate or graduate degree program you attended. An exception will be made if there has been a significant hiatus since you graduated. In that case, you may submit two professional letters of evaluation.
