Obtaining a Dean’s Certification
When applying to medical school, some schools may require a Dean’s Certification. This form is used by medical schools to determine if an applicant has any standing academic or disciplinary sanctions on their University record. Please note that most medical schools do not require a Dean's Certification. However, if applying to a school where it is required, a form will be located within the school’s application packet.
Dean's Certification forms should be submitted to The Career Center for processing and submission to medical schools. To have a Dean’s Certification completed, applicants should do the following:
- Sign the Dean's form for each school in the appropriate place.
- Complete the Registration and Authorization For Release of Letters of Evaluation.
- Submit the Dean’s Forms, Career Center forms, and payment in the appropriate amount to The Career Center. If mailing materials, view the address here.
Please note that there is a 5 - 7 business day turnaround time on Dean's certifications, so applicants should plan accordingly. Requests for Certifications are processed on a first-come, first-served basis. Applicants are encouraged to submit forms well ahead of application deadlines.
