Chicago College of Osteopathic Medicine
The matriculation process begins after students receive notification of their acceptance. To complete the matriculation process, students must:
- Submit the matriculation agreement and required deposit monies by the date designated in the matriculation agreement. Deposits are applied towards the first quarter's tuition.
- Submit official final transcripts from all colleges attended post-high school by the deadline of two weeks (14 days) prior to the first day of classes. Students who are accepted to MWU less than one month prior to the first day of classes will have 30 calendar days from the date of their acceptance to submit all official transcripts to the Office of Admissions. Any special circumstances or requests for exceptions to this policy must be sent to and approved by the Office of the Dean of the college. Students who fail to submit all official final transcripts by the stated deadline may jeopardize their acceptance or continued enrollment in the College.
- Submit completed medical files documenting completion of a physical exam, immunizations, tuberculosis and titer blood testing as instructed by the Office of Student Services and detailed in the Student Handbook.
- Meet the Technical Standards for the college.
- Submit proof of medical and disability insurance coverage. Students may select either a plan offered by an MWU-approved carrier or a comparable plan offered by an outside carrier of their choice, as determined by the Office of Student Services. Insurance must be maintained throughout the entire period of enrollment.
- Submit additional documents as requested by the Office of Admissions or college.
- Provide documentation verifying that sufficient funds have been deposited in a U.S. bank, or one of six major Canadian banks, to cover all expenses while attending the college (applies only to non-U.S. citizens or temporary residents who hold student visas). Additional details and application forms are available in the Office of Student Financial Services.
- Submit a signed Credit Policy Statement.
- Authorize and pass the MWU criminal background check and/or fingerprinting background check as required by the specific college/school/program.

Students who fail to satisfy these matriculation requirements or who omit or falsify information required on official admission documents automatically forfeit their seat in the program. Any individual accepted for admission to the college/program who does not comply with stated timelines for submission of all required materials receives no further notification from the college regarding the forfeiture of their seat.
